There are many worthwhile national and regional charities in the UK, all helping their own specific and worthwhile causes.
However, if you are a small Whitnash organisation or an individual trying to take part in a sporting event, perhaps a regional champsionship or even an Olympics, need a new musical instrument for your band, a uniform for your group, you would like to go to University, or you have just fallen on hard times and need some help; then getting money from a large charity is likely to prove difficult.
The Whitnash Charitable Trust is here only for people who live in Whitnash, and so you aren't up against thousands of other applicants.
Since we are a very new charity and our budget is small, we don't yet have large some of money to give away. But as the years pass we hope to build up a pot of money we can distribute to more and more Whitnash people and groups.
