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.
Please note, due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, we have had to cancel our April and July Adnams Community Trust meetings, and are therefore unable to process any applications. We hope to be up and running in time for the October meeting. Please keep an eye on this webpage for further updates.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Adnams Community Trust was founded in 1990 to celebrate Adnams centenary as a public company. It is funded by a percentage of Adnams annual profits, mandated dividends, 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:
