The Trustees of the Charities have a modest amount of money available to them each year to assist those in need in the Parish.
In the past the Trustees have automatically awarded the over 70s who had previously applied and widow/ers, as well as supporting students. Following the amalgamation of the United Charities and the Nursing Charity, the trustees have reviewed the Trust Deed or ‘rules’ under which grants can be made. They have noted that they have a legal responsibility to ensure that the funds of the Charity are spent in line with the Trust Deed and as such have concluded that in future it will be necessary for those ‘in need’ to submit an annual application in confidence to the Charity. The short form can be downloaded here or obtained from any of the Trustees or the Clerk, contact details below.
If, for whatever reason, you find yourself in need of financial assistance, please do make contact.
The Trustees will be meeting in October, therefore all applications must be returned to a Trustee or the Clerk by the end of September.
