Welcome to the John Holford Charity.

For three centuries the John Holford fund has been supporting residents and organisations in the parishes of Clutton, Middlewich, Congleton and the Ecclesiastical parish of Astbury. As a result of local authority changes, the list of parishes has been extended, see full list.

From its original annual endowment of £4.00 to William Cooper, school master of Clutton, in 1712, the fund has distributed over £360,000 in grants and gifts in the last five years alone.

We make donations to individuals in need, providing for anything from school uniforms to new washing machines, and we regularly support Dane Valley Debt Centre,

Home Start, Visyon, and the Free Spirit Travellers’ Club.
