General Relief

The Charity's purpose is to relieve "persons resident in the area who are in need, hardship or distress by making grants of money or paying for items, services or facilities" which will reduce that need.

Magna Carta Memorial

The area is the electoral Wards of Egham, Englefield Green, Hythe and Virginia Water and a beneficiary should, normally, have resided there for not less than 5 years.

Who, typically, qualifies for grants?

How do Trustees get to know of those in need?

We maintain regular and personal contact with organisations providing comfort, care and advice to people in the area. We prefer applications to come from these agencies.

How does the Charity help?

The Charity meets the costs of any help approved, either by making a cash grant to the referring agency for disbursement or by settling the bill direct. There is no upper or lower limit to the size of the grants the Trustees may award.

What can the Charity not do?
