Evercreech Relief in Need

Charity Commission Registered Number: 205527

The Evercreech Relief in Need Charity was formed in 1976 by the amalgamation of seven village charities that had been in existence since the early 1700s. The original charities were founded when local people gave land or property to St Peter’s Church to provide money to help village people at times of hardship. By the early 1970s none of these ancient charities were large enough, on their own, to cover their administrative and investment costs.

In 1976, with the help of the Charities Commission, the separate funds were combined under their new title Evercreech Relief in Need. The money was deposited with the Charities Aid Foundation Bank (CAF Bank) and Charinco Charity Investment Shares and this now produces our only income which currently amounts to about £120 per year.

From this income and our accumulated investments, we are able to make modest cash grants to help Evercreech people. In the past, we have helped with exceptional costs of transport to hospital, and we have been able to help with the cost of medical equipment not provided by the NHS. Money can also be made available for help with a family crisis and for one-off educational costs.
