WYE’S NON-EXISTENT CHARITIES

In my charity trawl, I came across this notice in the village shop window:

Wye CPFC 025

It turns out that the Wye Arts Association – which is not actually a charity – have about £250 a year to donate but they don’t get many applications. That seems a shame.

But less of a shame than the disappearance of the the Lady Joanna Thornhill Charity for Sermon and the Poor which was disbanded in 1996. This provided:

Forty shillings to be given to the minister of the Parish of Wye for the time being who should preach a sermon in the Church of Wye every Good Friday in the forenoon and thirty shillings on the same day paid to three poor men and three poor women that should be present at the service and the sermon in equal shares.
