This charity was formed in 1911 and has a Governing document registered with the Charity Commission dated 29th January 1915.  There is evidence that this charity existed much earlier that 1911 (circa 1830’s) as lands administered by the Churchwardens known as “the Church Lands” was used to create income to the maintenance of the Church and the benefit of the poor of the parish.

The current charity now collects rents from lands owned in Gressenhall and North Elmham (approx. 80 acres) and distributes the income equally between the PCC and the General Branch of the charity.
