Hewars Trust Village Charity

                                                                       

Supporting the local village community of Oxborough.

Help, Health and Education

The origins of the Hewars Trust Village Charity stems from Thomas Hewar from Castle Rising, who during 1619 died, leaving land that he owned in Oxborough in his Will for the benefit of the poor and the church in perpetuity. Ten acres of land are on Ferry Lane, Oxborough and there are shooting rights on thirteen acres of Caldecote Fen (known as the Poor Fen).  The Trust receives an income from this land, some of which is given to the church fabric fund in Oxborough.

The Thomas Hewars Trust supports the local community of the parish of Oxborough by helping those disadvantaged by hardship, infirmity (including respite care) or distress and those in need, who have lived in the parish of Oxborough for three years or more. Ever since the charity was formed, the Trust has supported smaller projects for the village in general such as Christmas gift distribution in the past, and above all, it has given individual support too.

The Hewars Education charity is available to help with child care facilities, extra-curricular activities for school children, learning disability, Dyslexia and help towards College or University books. In the past grants have been given to Gooderstone School to buy books for Oxborough children and also for sonics equipment in the school. Any parents of children in the parish of Oxborough are invited to apply for funding towards any of the above, or please contact one of the Trustees for further information.

The Hewars Trust raises money through the renting of land, a small income from a Cockley Cley charity is received once a year, and also through the generosity of individuals. This way, Hewars Trust can be in a financial position to be able to respond immediately to requests which are very often made as a last resort.

Hewars Trustees consults as widely as possible to find those who might need its support and help. If you know someone living in the parish of Oxborough who you feel would benefit financially or emotionally from our support, please be kind enough to inform one of the Trustees to see if we can provide help.

If you would like to contribute towards our fund-raising, support or leave us a legacy, you would be helping someone in Oxborough who needs help in one form or another.  Please contact one of the Trustees below.

Thomas Hewers Educational Foundation Charity No.311184.

Anyone in Oxborough who considers themselves, or knows anyone, to be in need and comes under the above category may apply to the Trustees of the Hewars Charity. 

An Oxborough village charity for the poor, chronically sick, disabled and the elderly.

Thanks to the 1619 Will of Thomas Hewar of Castle Rising, land was left that he owned at Oxborough, for the benefit of the Church and of the poor in perpetuity. This was how the Hewars Trust was formed and now exists.
Rent from the ten acres of arable land at Ferry Lane, shooting rights of the 13 acres of Caldecote Fen (known as the Poor Fen), plus one sixth of income from a Cockley Cley charity is received by the Hewars Charity. A third of the money goes to the church fabric fund, and a grant goes to Gooderstone School, ostensibly to buy books for Oxborough children. The remainder is available to give to the elderly, the chronically sick or disabled, those in conditions of need, hardship or distress who have lived in the parish of Oxborough for 3 years or more.

Great consideration has been given by the Trustees to ensure that any distribution is fair but also keeping more in line with the original intentions of the rules of the Trust. Therefore, instead of the normal Christmas distribution, anyone in Oxborough village who considers themselves to be in need, and who comes under the above categories, may apply to the Hewars Charity at any time of the year, and the Trust will help in whatever way they can. All applications received will be given immediate attention by the Trustees, and the applicant will be informed of the Trustees decision within 10 days or less, depending on the urgency of the matter.

Grants of money or providing or paying for items, services, or facilities calculated to reduce the need, hardship or distress of such persons in the above categories are one-off payments.
