In 2016 we gave away £27,250 to 37 local good causes, making our Grand Total since 1994 : £274,055!

Our emphasis is on local good causes, on young people in particular, and we encourage people who are likely to receive donations to come and help at the Feast. If they can’t help they might send their own supporters, or, like the wonderful Chestnut Club for older people, bake cakes we can sell at our tea and cake stall.

2016 was a great success. Below is the list of organisations that received funds.

To get a claim form, simply download the PDF here or download claim form as Word (docx) if you think you fit our criteria and would like to be considered as a beneficiary from the Feast. The deadline for grant applications is September 30th.

All grants are given out in public at our annual Disbursement Evening, details of which will be advertised locally and on this website in the Autumn. Our Charity Commission details are here.
