NOVEMBER 2023 MARWOOD PO0R LANDS CHARITY - ACKLAND'S GIFT
The Charity was established over 120 years ago with a mandate to "provide grants of money to the poor and destitute living in the Parish of Marwood".
Over the years the Trustees have continued to uphold this mandate; for example in 1967 eighteen residents received five shillings (25p) and in recent years financial grants have been made to provide household equipment.
Due to the continual social change and the increase in Government Social Welfare Payments there has been a reduction in the number of applicants. The reasons for applying for grants has also changed none more so than in the current financial situation.
The Charity has a small annual income from the lease of 7.5 acres of land in Marwood and this year we are offering a small number of Tesco vouchers to buy food etc. before Christmas. If you feel you meet the criteria and wish to apply, or know someone you think is eligible, (and have their consent) please contact the Trustees via email on firstname.lastname@example.org
