What is the Ann Powtrell Foundation?
It was founded in 1699 under the Will of Ann Powtrell of West Hallam. The object of the Charity was then to aid young apprentices. Since that time, investment of income, and approved changes in the objects of the Foundation, have meant that it is capable of assisting a very much wider range of young people.
Who can it help?
The present Charitable Scheme enables the Trustees (presently eight in number) to apply the income of the Charity for the benefit of persons under the age of 25 who are resident, or who have a parent or parents resident, in the Parish of West Hallam and who in the opinion of the Trustees are in need of financial assistance.
How can it help?
The Trustees can assist in helping with the costs of apprenticeship; with the costs of following any profession, trade or occupation; with the costs incurred in normal schooling over and above those expenses paid for by the State; with the costs of Further Education; and in generally promoting the social and physical training of young persons, including assistance to any Charitable organisation in West Hallam devoted to the development of young people.
