The name ‘University of Withywood’ originates from the home of our founder Anton Bantock (1933-2015). Withywood is a small suburb in south Bristol, United Kingdom. We have been organising events in and around South Bristol, U.K since the 1960s to help raise funds for the Sponsorship Fund and school projects abroad. For many years we used to operate as a Registered Charity but decided to downgrade while the organisation goes through a transitional phase. At the moment we just run as a Sponsorship Fund for helping young people continue their education.

We always have and will continue to run this organisation with no overhead costs, salaries or expenses. All donations go directly to charitable and worthwhile causes. When money is donated it is either sent to individuals with whom we have built up a working relationship and are proving to provide positive assistance for children abroad.
