The activities of the Charity are determined by a governing document which is registered with the Charity Commission. There are 15 trustees, all of whom are volunteers, who have a duty to ensure that the Charity functions in accordance with the governing document.
There are four full meetings each year. In addition there are three sub-committees namely: Estates & Finance, Pound Close (Almshouses) and the Charitable Payments Committee. Each sub-committee meets on average two to three times a year.
The Charity’s income, currently around £120,000 per annum, is generated by rents from property and land and income from invested funds. The management of the property and land is undertaken by an Estate & Land Agency. The invested funds are looked after by an Investment Management Service.
Currently the Charity’s income is spent evenly between the Almshouses, Grants to Organisations and Grants to Individuals.
A full list of trustees and copies of the last five years’ annual reports and accounts are available on the Charity Commission website.
The Secretary/Administrator, Mrs Helen Wollerton, is employed by the charity and plays a crucial role in the functioning of the Charity.
Trustee vacancies arise from time to time. If you are interested in becoming
