Rother Rural Trust is a registered charity (number 1067847), set up in 1998 with a mission to help individuals and organisations in need in the rural parishes of Rother, excluding Battle and Rye.
Its specific aims are to relieve poverty, promote education and to do other charitable works. In the past, the Trust has for example, given grants to people in real need, to replace beds or washing machines, or has given support to promising young athletes and musicians to pay for their equipment or instruments.
To apply for a grant is very simple; write to the Clerk to the Trustees at the address below stating where you live and giving the reasons why you are asking for a grant and saying what amount you need.
The first of the two meetings of the trustees of the Rother Rural Trust (RRT) scheduled for 2019 takes place on Monday 25 February, so if you have any possible
applications for the Trust to look at, could you please get in touch with the Clerk to the Rother Rural Trust preferably initially by email (see below).
Typically the Trust awards sums in the region of £250, but the Trustees can agree other amounts if they feel the need is justified.
If you wish to donate to the Trust, and many parish councils and individuals have done so, for which we are very grateful, again contact the Clerk to the Trustees. Cheques should be made out to the Rother Rural Trust.
