Later, when the owner passed away, some of the proceeds from the house were put into a trust fund, the income from which is used today to help the community.

The trust is available to consider applications for financial assistance for the benefit of the community of Staverton, Northamptonshire.

If you would like to be considered for assistance from the trust, please contact the website administrator at clerk@stavertonparish.comĀ  who will pass your details on to the charities trustees.
