The work of the Queenborough Fishery Trust

The Queenborough Fishery Trust is a registered charity (number 1178117) dedicated to the prevention or relief of poverty and sickness, to providing and supporting facilities for recreation and other leisure time occupation, and to advancing education by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education. The charity’s trustees can also make grants for other charitable purposes as they see fit.

The trust operates within its area of benefit, with particular reference to Queenborough for the relief of poverty and sickness.

The charity’s main income comprises money received in return for the trustees granting leases for use of properties it owns. This income is used by the trustees to make grant awards, to invest for the long-term future of the trust and to pay the trust’s expenses.

Both individuals and organizations are eligible to apply to the trustees for a grant. To be successful an applicant has to meet the terms of the trust, primarily by demonstrating that money awarded will bring benefit to local residents in accordance with the trust’s object.

Fuller details of the objects of the trust can be obtained by reference to its entry on the Charity Commission website.
