The members of the Ulster History Circle work on a purely voluntary basis, meeting the cost of research, travel and communication from their own pockets. The Circle has no earning capacity or trust funds of any kind available to underpin its activities. Unlike similar bodies in the rest of the United Kingdom, who receive generous government grants, the Circle depends on Local Authorities, businesses, organisations and individuals to help fund specific plaques. We are grateful for this assistance and wish to acknowledge the generosity of spirit and civic responsibility of our supporters in celebrating personal achievement throughout history.
