Frances Ashton’s Charity

The Frances Ashton Charity supports serving or retired members of the Church of England Clergy or their Widows/Widowers who are in need.

The Frances Ashton Charity trustees consider supporting almost any kind of financial hardship for support; so long as the applicant is a serving or retired member of the Church of England clergy or the widow/widower thereof. There are only a few exceptions.

Examples of when grants have been given are:
  • To buy a new pair of glasses
  • A respite care break or a family holiday where urgent need can be shown
  • Replacement household items in cases where parish or diocesan assistance is not available
