The Trust is looking for projects that it may be able to give a grant to.  Yes, we have money to give away!  If you know of a project, based in Hatfield, whose criteria is similar to our own of relieving poverty and helping those in need, let us know!

We would like to express our sincere thanks for the financial support and extreme efficiency you have shown towards our project

 

A FULL ANNUAL REPORT AND ACCOUNTS IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST

THE WELLFIELD ROOM is available for hire at very reasonable rates, is easily accessible and can seat 30 people.  It is also available free of charge to self-help groups who fall within the Trust’s criteria.

Our SCOOTER LOAN SCHEME has become very successful in giving local residents back their independence.  Around 72 people have benefited from the scheme and, as scooters are ‘recycled’, more will benefit in the future.  If you know anyone who is virtually housebound and would benefit from the loan of a scooter, let us know!
