Welcome to Alrewas and Fradley Charities

Alrewas and Fradley Charities was originally known as Alrewas United Charities and dates back to 1692 when one William Turton left money for the benefit of our village. Since then there have been a further eight charities or wills involving our villages. In 1932 an application to the Charity Commission was made by the then Vicar of Alrewas and four others to amalgamate these charities, and Alrewas United Charities was born.

Since 1932 the trustees have met regularly, and given modest donations as the original deed instructed, “for the general benefit of the poor” including “grants or contributions for the sick and infirm, the supply of clothes, boots, linen and bedding, and the temporary assistance in money in case of sickness, special distress or unexpected loss”. In 2015, our objectives were re-drafted to allow us to support any Charitable Cause in Alrewas, Fradley, or Orgreave. in 2016 we took on the new name of Alrewas and Fradley Charities.

We currently have 13 Trustees, including 1, nominated by Alrewas Parish Council, and one nominated by Fradley and Streethay Parish Council.

We are so fortunate to live in this wonderful area and encourage everyone who feels that way, to be involved. There are many ways you can help, including regular giving by Gift Aided standing order, loose change collecting box, individual donations or legacies.

Spread the Word

We are particularly keen to hear of any good causes that qualify for our support or funding, in Alrewas, Fradley and Orgreave, especially young people seeking funding for academic, musical, sporting or personal development.

It's our charity, it's your charity!

We rely on donations from individuals, fund raising activities, and the modest rent we receive from a field, owned by the Charities, at Orgreave. Our aim is to support any individual in distress for whatever reason, whilst also supporting and encouraging local initiatives, and good causes.
