Entertaining the community and raising money for local good causes


Who gains from the money we raise?
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.

Our Charity Commission details are here.

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

Go here for the claim form  (pdf) or 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. Please note that the date for the Feast Disbursement Event, when any grants will be publicly given out, is normally an evening in November.

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