CHIPPING CAMPDEN COMMUNITY TRUST

ABOUT THE TRUST

Chipping Campden Community Trust (CCCT) is a Charitable Trust established in 1995.  95% of income comes from legacies from the Tryphena Wood and the Fred Badger Trust.  Even though these funds are restricted to helping older people, we have been able accrue unrestricted funds from additional donations and bequests, to support projects for younger people and organisations.  We would like to increase this fund in order to do more for people of all ages in the community.

The principal aim of the Trust is to enable older people to remain at home where possible and to lead active productive lives.

The Trust also uses the limited unrestricted funds to support individuals and groups where no official support is available or limited.

THE AREA WE COVER

Chipping Campden, Broad Campden, Mickleton, Aston and Weston-sub-Edge, Willersey, Ebrington, Saintbury, Charingworth and the Hidcotes.
