It is a Registered Charity whose aim is to administer the income from its investments, to help residents of Market Drayton and nearby villages in need of health or convalescence care not available on the NHS.
Examples of assistance given to date are:
◉ Purchase of equipment for Market Drayton Health Centre ◉
◉ Help towards travelling expenses for hospital appointments ◉
◉ Provision of night care in the home for individuals ◉
◉ Funds to help alleviate suffering and enhance lifestyles ◉
◉ Help towards funding for Health Care Groups in Market Drayton ◉
Applications are not means tested and the fund is administered by 7 trustees who meet on a quarterly basis to consider applications received.
