The Samuel Franklin Fund
The Samuel Franklin Fund Elsworth exists to make grants to the residents of the parish of Elsworth who are less well off, or are in need of help because of illness infirmity, hospitalisation or other special needs, or are starting a job and require help to buy tools or educational literature. In addition, donations may be made to individuals who or institutions which provide help or services for the sick or elderly of the parish.
Recent examples apart from individual grants at Trinity and Christmas, have included donations to Elsworth Youth Club, Papworth Day Centre, the Jubilee Club, grants to pupils at Elsworth School to enable them to participate in adventure courses when parents have been unable to meet the costs, grants to households for special (one off) needs, a grant for special equipment for a disabled person, and contributions to funeral expenses in deserving cases.
The trustees, all of whom provide their services on a voluntary basis, are…
Mrs A Howell, Main Wing, Elsworth Manor
Dr S Taylor, Meadow Farm, Broad End
Mr J Hicks, The Limes, Boxworth Road
Mr I Maddison, Lordship Cottage, Fardells Lane
Revd Fiona Windsor, Team Rector, (Ex Officio)
