The Barnes Charitable Trust

The prime responsibility of the Trust is the maintenance of Ashmeadow Woodlands. When the Trust has surplus funds it will use these to make small grants within the village. Grant awards will normally be in the range of £300 to £1,000.  Preference will be given to projects which benefit the environment/education/recreation. For full details see the guidance notes below or contact John Stride on 07540565813,  or



Arnside Grants 2023
The Trust is faced with the cost of repairing the wall of the Walled Garden that was badly damaged in Storm Arwen in November 2021 along with clearance of the many trees that were damaged.
This means that regretably we are unable to consider grants this year.

Past Grants

Arnside Guides, Minds in Tune, Arnside Football Club, Arnside National School and Arnside Art Group were among those local organisations to be awarded grants in 2018.  The grant given to the Art Group helped towards the cost of four 'Art for All' workshops run in Arnside to encourage people to take up art. That for the guides helped with the costs of the Jigsaw Camp and also paid to repair one of the tents.
