Seend Fund - The Seend Fund is a local charity formed when
land belonging to two former charities was sold. In keeping with the original
aims the trustees use the interest from this sale for relieving financial hardship
among those living in or closely connected with the Parish of Seend and also
for providing some help towards the cost of maintaining the fabric of Seend
Church. Any requests for help from those who qualify are considered and these
can include help with education and training costs that is not provided for
by other grants or loans.
For more information about the fund please contact Anita Shea the secretary of the trustees by writing to her at 34 Seend Cleeve, Melksham SN12 6PY or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
