The Lady Norton (Abbots Leigh) Charities

These charities were started in the 1700's and provide small grants.

The Apprenticing Charity is much wider than the title implies. The trustees can make small grants to young people (under 21 years) who are residents of the Parish of Abbots Leigh towards the expenses of their education and training or the purchase of study books.

Other young people from the village have been assisted with travel abroad so they can spend their vacation helping others in a voluntary capacity while gaining valuable life experience.

If you wish to apply please email Steve Livings setting out your request.
