A Stevenage charity set up to make the best use of the money left over when a town housing association was wound up in 2012 has asked for suggestions on where its cash would make a difference.

The Chauncy Charity makes grants to help individual old people or groups of older people who have limited funds and live in Stevenage or villages nearby.

Secretary Bruce Lendrum said: “We make grants of money to local lunch clubs and other groups to help with, for example, outings and parties and small items of equipment.

“We also assist individuals to purchase household equipment to help with daily living and to make life easier and happier.”

The charity provides funds for the Warm Homes Schemes in Stevenage and also supports the work of the Stevenage Community Trust.

Anyone who wants to know more about its work can visit www.thechauncycharity@wordpress.com where application forms can also be found.
