The Castlefield Charitable Fund was originally established in 2006 by the Partners of our first trading business from funds which might otherwise have been distributed to the Partners as profits. Today it provides our group with the means to support worthwhile projects with a positive social and environmental impact.

Small grants of between £100-£1,000 are available to registered charities with an annual expenditure of under £1million.

The Charitable Fund also supports a donation-matching scheme for Castlefield Co-owners.
