The curious looking for more details about the "Preston Community Library" can find them here. Currently operating a budget of a few thousand pounds, Brent's gifting of more than a quarter of a million goes well beyond anything that the organisation has done in the past. Normally, Brent has asked for due diligence to be carried out as part of its decision to award grants. Organisations which have no previous history of dealing with these kind of sums find it hard to obtain the grant.
The situation is therefore even more anomalous than it appeared to be.
