The Sarah Rolle Trust was established by Sarah Rolle 1731 to further the education of children of East Tytherley and Lockerley with East Dean parishes. The Trust can make grants to assist the educational needs of those living within the parishes or whose parents still reside within. Grants are made by the Trustees who meet twice a year in March and October. The dates are published in the newsletter of the United Benefice of Lockerley, East Dean, West Tytherley and East Tytherley.

This link leads to a grant application form in PDF format; if you plan to apply to the trust for a grant you should download it, read it carefully, and send it in within the timescale requested and usually notified in the Newsletter. You will need to print it and send the completed form to the Secretary or to the email link provided in the Newsletter.

The terms of this charity, as shown in the Charity Commissioner’s Schedule, state that grants must be made for educational purposes and that applicants must be under 25 years of age. They or their parents now reside, within the church parishes of Thorngate.

They meet usually in March and October and the exact date will be published in the United Benefice Newsletter.
