Applications welcome to Marshal Beresford’s Fund & Church Fabric and Development Fund

The Marshal Beresford’s Fund and the Church Fabric and Development Fund are held towards the building or repair of churches or chapels. The grants from the Marshal Beresford’s Fund and the Church Fabric and Development Fund are allocated half–yearly in April and November.
