The trustees of Haddenham Parochial Charities are currently accepting applications from residents of Haddenham Parish in need of support.

Consisting of three registered ancient charities: Joseph Franklin (204185), Alms Corn (237265) and Revd John Willis (205529), the charities historically provided bread and coal to the poor at Christmas, and seed corn on Good Friday. Nowadays, the trustees use the income of the charities to provide a gift of money at Christmas time to residents in need.

If you are in need of relief, please complete the attached application form. Only adult residents of Haddenham Parish may apply and only one application per household.

Paper copies can be collected from Haddenham Post Office, Tickety Brew, Haddenham Parish Council Office and Blooming Fruity.
