Each year the Bekonscot Model Village and Railway shares its profit or surplus between two charities: The Roland Callingham Foundation and the Church Army. The Roland Callingham Foundation, named after the founder of Bekonscot, then makes small charitable grants to numerous, mostly local, organisations. These organisations include local churches, scout groups, community groups, health and care charities and many others.
The Foundation is keen to hear from organisations local to Beaconsfield which undertake charitable activities and which might benefit from a small grant.
All applications for grants need to be made on the Foundation’s standard application form.Download application form
Alternatively application forms can be obtained from Mrs Sandra De Lord, c/o Kingston Smith LLP, Devonshire House, 60 Goswell Road, London EC1M 7AD, to whom all completed applications should be sent. Each year applications should be submitted by 30 April and organisations can expect to hear whether they are to receive a grant by 31 October.
All applications will be carefully considered. The money available for grants is however limited so not all organisations which apply will receive a grant.
The Roland Callingham Foundation looks forward to receiving grant applications from organisations undertaking charitable activities in the Beaconsfield area.
