The Lackford Charities –


Lackford Charities

The Charity Commission has agreed to revise the object of the Lackford Charities by adding a social inclusion element to the historic role of alleviating poverty.  Since the 16th century, four benefactors have made bequests to benefit Lackford residents in distressed circumstances. But, as no claims have been made for many years its was decided to seek amendment of the charities’ remit, which now has two objects:

  1. Relief of poverty in Lackford by grant of money or payment of bills.
  2. Promotion of community and social inclusion in Lackford by financial support for hiring community facilities.

The additional object will encourage the use of the new community facilities in Lackford church.  Applicants are invited to contact Colin Smith 728316, or Simon Dry 729092.
