The Manjit Wolstenholme Fund

Manjit Wolstenholme was born in India and went to school in Wolverhampton. Her life story was one of building the skills and perseverance to break down barriers to succeed in business. Manjit became the youngest woman to head an investment bank in London and went on to become the first woman from an ethnic minority background to chair a FTSE 100 company.

The Manjit Wolstenholme Fund has been established with support from Bradford-based, Provident Financial to honour the memory of Manjit and support children and young people in disadvantaged areas of Bradford District to achieve their potential through educational and aspirational opportunities. Manjit’s own experiences meant she believed passionately that no-one should be denied the chance to achieve their true potential as a result of their background or where they live.
