Winsham United Charities

The Charity of Sir Matthew Holworthy was founded by will in or before the year 1680.

The Charity of John Wheaden was also founded by will on the 26th of March 1866.

The two charities were merged into Winsham United Charities on the 26th of February 1912. 

The Holworthy charity was originally for apprenticeships and enabled trustees ‘to make awards to boys and girls resident in the Parish of Winsham who show 'real academic and technical ability'. 

Winsham United Charities are now able to consider grant requests of between £20 and £200, from young people living in the Parish of Winsham, for help with costs of: equipment; tuition; events; activities; and travel expenses.
