Terrington St John Consolidated Charity
The charity commenced on the appointment of the new trustees when the Widows Hospital and The Poor’s Land charities were amalgamated on 11th December 1911. At this time the Vicar and a few trustworthy landowners would give charity to the poor – i.e. a bag of coal.
The application was made to the Charitable Trust Act on 29th October 1910. The application was approved, established, administrated, and manged by the body of trustees on 9th October 1911.
When I joined the Parish Council in the 1990s’ the charity gave money out as it does today. Over the years as the Charity Commission rules and regulations have changed, but the trustees have continued to give out money at Christmas.
