Applications invited for historic Matlock grant

Worthy causes in the Matlock area are being invited to apply to Derbyshire Dales District Council for funds from the historic Ernest Bailey Charity.

Your District Council is Trustee of the charity, which makes an annual grant from interest on a fund set up by local benefactor Ernest H. Bailey.

Bailey, born in 1870, owned Bailey's Flour Mills in Lumsdale and in 1924 founded the former Ernest Bailey Grammar School in Matlock’s New Street.

As Trustee, the District Council administers Bailey’s fund “for the general benefit of the inhabitants of Matlock and district” in one or more of the following ways:

  • for the relief of the aged and poor,
  • for the relief of distress and sickness,
  • to support facilities for recreation and other leisure time activities,
  • to support educational facilities or
  • in such other way as the Trustees think fit.

Your District Council welcomes applications from organisations and individuals who meet the criteria and it’s now easier than ever to apply online.

The closing date for completed application forms is Monday 22 October. Further information and a paper application form can be obtained by email to grants@derbyshiredales.gov.uk or write to Ros Hession, Community Engagement Officer, Community Development Department, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Town Hall, Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 3NN, or phone 01629 761302.
