Charity and Community Bursary

Each year, we are proud to provide funding to local charity and community projects.

The Blenheim Bursary Fund 

The 2021 Blenheim Bursary focused on gifting to local projects and charities that focus their work on bringing people together in the local community. This year a total of 20 local charities, organisations and good causes are set to benefit £50,000 from our charity and community bursary.

Among groups receiving funds, ranging from £200 to £5,000, are Combe Village Hall Committee, Stonesfield Outdoor Gym, Freeland Baby & Toddler Group, the Plunkett Foundation, Sustainable Woodstock, Edward Field Primary School, North Leigh Roman Villa, Begbroke Orchard and Aspire Oxford. Other organisations receiving funding are; Combe Hub, Freeland Allotments, Harvest at Home, Stonesfield School, Woodstock Bowls Club, St Peter’s School, Stonesfield Scouts, Hanborough Manor Preschool, Pink Sky Yoga and Combe Primary School.

Since we launched the scheme at the end of 2018, the Blenheim Bursary has distributed in excess of £150,000 to more than 50 different organisations across the local communities.

Among the groups to receive funds in 2020, which ranged from £500 to £5,000, were FarmAbility, Oxfordshire Youth, Stonesfield Allotments, Sustainable Woodstock, Forrest Bathing and West Witney Primary School.

The bursary is available to all charities and organisations based within a 20-mile radius of Blenheim and is part of our ongoing commitment to more than double our charitable contributions to our local community within 10 years.
