The Beaumont Trust

The Beaumont Relief in Need Charity was established many years ago (in the 18th century) to help women in Coleorton in genuine need, irrespective of age or social status. We recognise that over the years the nature of such needs might have changed and we are open to suggestions and applications.

Things can be tough on people on low incomes (whether they are in work or not) and unforeseen events make it worse.

Needs can be varied, as can the ways we might be able to help. Examples of the kind of financial help we could consider:

  • Help towards cost of transport to visit a relative in hospital
  • Help towards childcare costs to enable the applicant to attend back-to-work re-training
  • Help towards the cost of heating and domestic appliances

We know there is a need, especially for those (not just ladies) living alone, for company to combat loneliness, and we have arranged regular "Coffee and Chat" drop-in gatherings at local hostelries. These have proved quite popular with nearly 40 local people and friends at the coffee morning in March. Please keep an eye on the Coleorton website News and Events page for dates.

If you think we could help you, or anyone you know in the village, please contact in the first instance the Trust's secretary, in the knowledge that this would be in strict confidence:
