My husband Bryan and I began farming in 1971 just outside Southam in Warwickshire. We had sheep and cattle, and grew Wheat, Rape, Barley, and lots of potatoes. Some of these potatoes were hand picked using local people, and lots of school children at weekends and during the autumn half term holiday. It was hard work but great fun. Most of the work force stayed in touch over the years, and it has been wonderful meeting the children, now grown up, who said how much being in the outdoors, doing hard physical work, and earning some money, shaped their characters and gave them confidence for later life.
Bryan over time developed an interest in converting redundant buildings on our farm into holiday homes, and also worked on a Wesleyan Chapel saving it from remaining empty and becoming derelict.
The Bryan and Janet Moore Charitable Trust stems from the strong links we have been fortunate to have made with the local community during our farming life. It is hoped that the grants available will help small associations and clubs to be able to continue promoting activities that encourage a strong community spirit. At the centre of a community there is always a church, and it is our hope that applications will be granted to enable repairs to be done to keep these wonderful ancient buildings open for worship.
The Janet & Brian Moore Charitable Trust has been established to support projects which unite local communities within the counties of Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.
To be eligible for a potential grant please complete the 'Application Form' setting out the details of your project and why you think supporting your project will result in uniting your local community.
Once this form is received, the Trustees of the Charity will assess your application on its merits and should they feel your project is suitable and aligns with the Charities' objectives, an offer of financial support will be made. The maximum amount of support per project is £20,000.
All decisions made by the Trustees are solely at their discretion, with each application judged on its merits against the Charities principles.
All successful applications will be notified in writing with an offer of financial support along with the terms of the agreement and the evidence required prior to payment. Each case will be individual, however for every project evidence of completion of the project will be required prior to full payment of the grant.
Unfortunately the Charity will not be able to support all the applications received, this however doesn't mean they are ineligible and need not deter you from re-applying in another year.
Tell us more about you, your plans and how you aim to achieve the intended results with amount of money you’re requesting.
Although we endeavour to respond to every applicant, please be aware if you do not hear within 2 months of submitting your application, you should consider it unsuccessful.
We love it when we can help you as an individual, help the community for others.
"We are extremely grateful to the Janet & Brian Moore Trust, with their kind donation, we have purchased a garden arch, plants and seating for our new school peace garden created on a small area of disused land. It has contributed toward a lovely area for the children to use. Being a very small school, we have limited funds and this donation has helped us to furnish the garden."
"Our Pre School would like to say a big thank you to the Janet and Brian Moore trust for their kind donation which enabled us to offer an amazing variety of play, learning and life skills experiences. Having this equipment also made it easier for us to offer a COVID safe environment and keep the setting open during the pandemic, helping to support many families and especially keyworker children."
"We are trying to make our village church an integrated part of the village community and to help with this we have started up a village cinema, unfortunately the existing sound system was not suitable for this event, so we applied to the trust for funding to upgrade the system, fortunately we were successful and received the full amount we requested, the process was very straightforward and the help we received from the trustees was very helpful. We now have a fully functioning cinema system that will enable the local residents to enjoy the thrill of the big screen without the need to travel. Thanks to all involved."
"Thanks to the support of the Trust, we are bringing together people in our local community to create a Sensory Garden. The Trust’s contribution will help purchase supplies of plants and tactile materials to build the garden in the Great Central Woodland. The Sensory Garden is planned to be a safe place for children and adults of all abilities to experience the various sensations of nature, including sight, sound, smell, touch and possibly taste, and as an area that will bring families and community groups together through caring for it.
Thank you kindly to the Janet and Bryan Moore Charitable Trust."
"The Accessible Boat Club is so very grateful to The Janet and Bryan Moore Charitable Trust for helping us develop a boarding pontoon to enable disabled passengers, both ambulant and wheelchair users, to get on and off our wheelyboat. This will enable us to fulfil our mission to get disabled people out and about on the River Thames to enjoy the pleasures of boating - fishing, picnicking, the lovely scenery and general messing around on the river.
Our considerable thanks for your trust and confidence in our Charity."
