Dear Worlingworth Parishioners
The Trustees of the Worlingworth Charities would like to wish all parishioners a very Healthy and Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
Once again we are pleased to donate £30.00 as our Christmas Distribution which is being made to some of the many )ver 65 year old pensioner households in the village. As many of you are aware the Charities make a small cash payment at Christmas to many pensioner households in the village. The criteria for this is that one or more pensioner in the household must have been a resident of the village for at least 5 years. If you qualify you can apply to the Trustees to receive a payment , or you can notify the Trustees that you do not wish to take the payment. The Trustees are very grateful to those pensioners who do not take the payment as this enables more money to be given to the various village organisations that the Charities support , but equally we are very happy to help with our contributions to pensioner households
If you qualify but we have not been in contact with you before , please let us know whether or not you would like the Christmas payment asap - and certainly before Christmas.
As many of you will be aware the Worlingworth Charities consist of The John Godbold Charity which has the original objective of helping the church and the poor, and the Educational Charity which was set up to help education in the village.
This year we have increased our funding to the Village newsletter , and also to the school to raise funds to help them try to retain their Outstanding Status. We have continued to support the Church , as well as other village organisations and individuals.
If you know of anyone who is over 65 and has lived here for 5 years or more and who would want to accept a distribution from us ,or of any organisation who we should consider assisting, or any young people with small education expenses who may need assistance please let us know .We will do our best to help where possible and where the criteria of the charities allow.
Merry Christmas everyone -- Chris Watson Chairman of the Worlingworth Charities
