The Leeke Educational Foundation was established under the terms of the will of the Reverend Canon Edward Leeke (1841-1925), a Sub-Dean of Lincoln Cathedral. He helped pioneer education in Lincoln, notably the school in Christ’s Hospital Terrace, now a part of Lincoln University. It has a policy on safeguarding vulnerable beneficiaries which can be viewed on request.
