What is the Town Lands Trust?

10 July 2018

Saxtead Town Lands Trust is an ancient Charity which has an annual income of about £2,500. By direction of the Charity Commission one third of this income goes to All Saints’ Church PCC for the upkeep of the fabric of the Church.
The remainder goes to a subsidiary Charity, Saxtead Welfare Trust, and this is used to help anyone living or working in Saxtead in the case of "need, hardship or distress and for educational purposes”.
In practice, these days the Trust gives assistance for such things as the cost of hospital visiting and for books for students in higher education and tools/equipment for apprenticeships.
For further enquiries or requests please contact the secretary, Phoebe Sullivan on email phoebesusansullivan@googlemail.com.
