The Adnams Community Trust was established in 1990 to celebrate Adnams centenary as a public company. It awards modest grants to good causes within 25 miles of Southwold.
We’re really happy that the Adnams Community Trust has resumed its great work and we are planning to hold grant meetings in 2021.
The Adnams Community Trust was founded in 1990 to celebrate Adnams centenary as a public company and is funded by a percentage of Adnams annual profits, mandated dividends, donations via Pennies in Adnams stores, general donations and legacies.
The Adnams Community Trust awards grants to worthy causes within 25 miles of Southwold or, in the case of national charities, exclusively for the benefit of those living within 25 miles of Southwold. Grants normally range from £100 to £2,500 and the Trustees expect to see the results of their donations within one year.
Most grants are awarded under the headings of Education, Health & Social Welfare, The Arts, Recreation, Buildings & Community Facilities, Conservation & Environment and History. Your charity or good cause must be located within 25 miles of St Edmund’s Church in Southwold. For an application form, application guidelines or if you have any questions, please contact:
