Worplesdon and the Ancient Parish of Wyke Charities

The Worplesdon and Ancient Parish of Wyke – Normandy Charities have been helping those in need within both Parishes for some 400 years. Monies from local bequests and the Smith Charity are invested by the Charities Commission and interest is distributed by them to local charities for distribution amongst those in need.

The trustees of the above charities invite applications from households in need, living within the boundaries of the Ancient Parish of Wyke-Normandy.

Help is available to those on low incomes, basic and supplementary pensions, veterans of military conflict and cases of disability, illness and bereavement. Help can be given to younger families requiring extra care or where there are domestic problems. We may also be able to help young groups and clubs seeking to improve what they can offer.

All requests for help are dealt with in strict confidence. They can be made personally or on your behalf by a relative or neighbour. Our main distribution is at Christmas but help can be given at any time. The amounts are not large but helpful.

Applications for help should be made to your Normandy Parish Representative, Val Cheesman. (Contact details Tel. 01483 811847 or email alval345@btinternet.com).
