Baldwins Charity and Allotments

For more information, contact us on 07802 459999 or charitybaldwins@gmail.com

The Baldwins Charity Trust was set up in the 19th century to maintain an area of land on the western edge of Ullesthorpe for the benefit of the poor of the village. Part of this land is now used for grazing sheep and cattle and the footpath and track running across this area is in regular use by walkers. The other part is devoted to about 18 allotments.

The Baldwins Charity allotments are on the left at the bottom of the hill out of Ullesthorpe going towards Claybrooke.

Allotments

All the plots for the 2020 season are allocated and we still have a waiting list that the current number of allotments will not be able to fulfil. We have land available to convert into more allotments and would ask anyone interested in taking an allotment to contact us now so we can gauge the level of interest and provide enough plots to satisfy the need

Allotment gardening is great fun and extremely rewarding, but it is also a lot of hard work; so if you don’t think you can manage a full sized plot, don’t be put off asking for a smaller one, rent is £12 for the 2020 season.

 

2020 Charitable Grants available

In 2020 we have funds available to offer to individuals or village organisations that would benefit in these difficult times

We consider applications from any individual or organisation where a grant would help residents of Ullesthorpe who are experiencing hardship, to access essential goods or services which would improve their situation and or assist village organisations in their efforts to alleviate poverty and promote well-being.

To discuss a possible application in confidence, or for more details and an application form, please contact the Secretary, Richard Goodman at charitybaldwins@gmail.com,    19 The Dell, Ullesthorpe    07802 459999

Applications must be submitted by 28th August 2020.
