The Trustees of the “Sams Trust” decided last year that the 2016 distribution would be the last. This decision was widely supported by the recipients of the gift. The original purpose for the use of income from the fund was the provision of a village hall and support for “the needy” in the community. It has been decided to provide such support in a more focused and effective way. Therefor funds previously used at Christmas will be made available for any resident of the Parish, considered to be in real need, on application to the Trustees. Such applications will be completely confidential and the granting of such support will be at the discretion of the Trustees only. Funds are now available and any request for support should be sent, in the first instance by letter, to the secretary, Mr Andrew Harris, 16 Gravel Walk, Emberton, MK46 5JA
