The Town Council also administers two registered Charities.

The Bear Club Foundation, an Educational Trust established in the 18th Century which provides assistance to young persons under the age of 25 years of age who are resident in the county of Wiltshire with a preference for those residing in the town of Devizes. 

The Frank and George Simpson and Dr Raby Trust Fund was an amalgamation of three separate charities established in the 1950’s and can only benefit the residents of Devizes.

Both funds are comparatively modest therefore grants awarded reflect this.

For an application form and further information, contact Richard Hopkins at Devizes Town Council on 01380 722160.
