The Beaumont (Relief in Need) Charity

The Beaumont (Relief in Need) Charity

The charity was established in the 18th century to help women in Coleorton in genuine need, irrespective of age or social status.  Over the years the nature of such needs has changed and the Trust is open to suggestions and applications. Life can be difficult for people on low incomes (whether they are in work or not) and unforeseen events like the COVID crisis make it worse.  Typical examples of support are help towards cost of transport to visit a relative in hospital, childcare costs to enable the applicant to attend back-to-work retraining, assistance with cost of heating and domestic appliances.  If you think we could help to support you or anyone you know in the village, please contact in the first instance the Trust’s secretary Georgina Raffle (details below) in the knowledge that this would be in strict confidence.
