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 provide bread and coal for the poor at Christmas, and seed corn on Good Friday. Nowadays the trustees make a small gift of money at Christmas time to claimants in need.
The list of applicants is kept confidential to the trustees.
If you wish to apply, please collect and complete a form, now available in the Post Office, the Medical Centre, the Parish Office, and Blooming Fruity for return by Saturday 1st December 2018.
The trustees wish to advise that applications are not confined to pensioners or the elderly. If you know of a Haddenham resident in need, please make them aware of the Parochial Charities.
