The Lewthwiate Charity

Frances Jane Lewthwaite of Stott Park, who died in 1914, left a bequest to the Vicar and Churchwardens of the Parish of St Peter, Finsthwaite. One half was "towards the maintenance of music in the Church" and the other half was "to benefit the poor and sick of the Parish". Life has changed very considerably since then. State Pensions and
the NHS have altered the scene, nor would the annual income of about 30 go far with today's prices. Music continues to be a part of Church Services. In accordance with the requirements of the Charity Commissioners, the Trustees aim to modernise this charity, making it more relevant to the present situation. Application has been made for permission to spend the capital as income.
