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!   

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 chargeto self-help voluntary groups where the majority of its members are living in Hatfield and on low income or state benefits.  If you know of any such group, who are looking for somewhere to meet, let us know!

Our SCOOTER LOAN SCHEME has become very successful in giving residents back their independence.  Over 50 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!

Albany Radio Ltd (White Goods)
G Tompsett (Carpets)
