The Palmer Trust is a village charity to help villagers of Whaddon.
The Alfred Palmer’s Trust gives modest grants of up to £50 to people of Whaddon for whom a small cash injection could make a real difference. The Trust will consider requests from all Whaddonians but especially from the elderly.
It was originally set up in 1927 to purchase coal for distribution to the poor widows of Whaddon Parish but the Trustees have now changed the aims to be more in line with the 21st century!
If you want to apply or know of someone else who may benefit from a grant, please either email Angela Bridges, the Whaddon Parish Clerk, at whaddonparishcclerk [at] outlook.com, or write to her at 31 Bridge Street, Whaddon SG8 5SG.
For an historical overview of the Trust and some archive material, see our History Page, on the Archive material tab.
