Haddenham Parochial Charities
Responsibility for the three Haddenham Parochial Charities was taken over from the Parish Church authorities when parish councils were instituted in 1894. The original charities were set up to support the poor of the parish by providing bread, and coal at Christmas and corn seed on Good Friday. The income comes from investments and through ownership of the land at Townside which is used for allotments. The Parish Council leases the allotment site and pays an annual rent.
In modern times the operation of the charity has changed and the trustees use the income of the charities to make grants to individuals in need of charitable relief in December and to organisations catering for residents in need of charitable relief at any time of year. Applications can be made by contacting Alan Rose 01844 291004.
