A local charity for villagers of Wraxall and Failand established nearly 400 years ago is standing by to give more help during the coronavirus crisis.
Although there to help people experiencing financial hardship at any time, the Wraxall Charities trustees are anticipating more applications as the furlough scheme winds down.
The charities began in 1635 when a bequest to the people of Wraxall by the Marchioness of Northampton was used to purchase land, the rent from which was to be distributed amongst the poor as the churchwardens thought fit.
In more recent years, the charity has purchased essential household items such as a washing machine or cooker, helped towards the cost of school uniform and course fees, contributed to respite or convalescent assistance, among other requests for help.
If you or anyone you know might benefit, the charity is there to help.
Contact 07543 613278 or email firstname.lastname@example.org in the strictest confidence.
