Governance

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 £100,000 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 a trustee please contact Helen Wollerton.
