Haddenham Parochial Charities are inviting the less fortunate residents in the parish to apply for a grant.
The objects of the original bequests were to give bread and coal to the poor at Christmas, and seed corn to the poor who did not otherwise receive alms. Nowadays the income from the charities is divided to pay a small sum of money before Christmas.
Application forms are now available at the Post Office, the Medical Centre, Blooming Fruity, and the Parish Office for return by 1st December.
If you know of any particular residents who are in need at this time, please help them to obtain and complete an application form.
