Poors Allotment Charity - Cold Higham/Grimscote

Poors Allotment Charity - Cold Higham/Grimscote

Each year the Trustees of the above charity are able to 'apply the income of the Charity in relieving either generally or individually persons resident in the Parish of Cold Higham who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress, by making grants of money or providing or paying for items, services or facilities calculated to reduce the need, hardship or distress of such persons'.

In practice this means that funds may be available for:

1. Households with at least one householder being aged 65 or over may be granted an amount to help with heating bills. Once a grant has been given it will be given annually without the need to make a new application.

2. Students in higher education needing to purchase books or tools or to pay for travelling expenses. A grant may be applied for each year whilst in higher education.

3. Any other person in need or distress at any time of the year

Because of the difficulties experienced by the Trustees in identifying eligible people, those wishing to claim a grant should apply in writing to Mrs Nita Pearson (who is a Trustee of the Charity) by email or post, as follows:

Mrs Nita Pearson
Home Farm
2 Penthorne Close
Grimscote
Northants NN12 8LL

Email - nita.pearson@icloud.com

Applications should be received by 4th November 2019. Members of the community 'in need or distress' can apply to the Charity at any time of the year.
