Each year Bekonscot’s surplus income is distributed among a number of local and national charitable organisations. This is a continuation of the tradition established by our founder, Roland Callingham, whose vision for the village was to provide a quintessentially English visitor experience which supports local good causes.
In 2018 Bekonscot donated a total of £175,000 which was distributed between:
- Church Army
Previously part owners of Bekonscot and providers of volunteers in the early days. Church Army work to alleviate poverty and homelessness, including a project in Marylebone to help homeless women
- Small local and regional charities including local scout groups, churches and charitable organisations. Some of those receiving grants in 2018 are listed below
