The Pearson Trust

The Pearson and Others’ Relief in Need Charity

The Pearson and Others’ Trust is a small local charity which was established in 1882 to help people in need in the parishes of Aldwark, Alne, Flawith, Tholthorpe, Tollerton and Youlton. The charity makes small grants to residents of these villages who are on low incomes and are struggling to meet their everyday living costs or who have a particular need. This might include help to pay for essential household items or repairs, fuel bills, healthcare, or clothing and equipment for a baby or children and young people who are in education or training.

The trustees are particularly keen to help people affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

The charity also makes grants to local organisations for charitable activities which benefit people living in these villages. Organisations must have a bank account and a constitution.
