Blanchard is the name of the confidential trust managed by a group of people for Winterborne St. Martin. It was set up under the will of Joseph Blanchard in 1804 to specifically help the villagers. Today, the Trust can help in a much wider sense.
The Trustees have obtained permission to alter the terms of the Trust. To this effect, new capital is being raised so that anyone - adult, child or organisation - in the Parish of Winterborne St. Martin who has sudden misfortune or need which cannot be met quickly by the statutory services, can apply for financial help.
For more information, contact Mrs Fran Taylor on 889963 or one of the other Trustees.
