Fred Holt Memorial Fund

This is not a registered charity, but a fund set up in 1990 in memory of the first Parish Council Clerk, Fred Holt, to benefit senior citizens and make facilities available for them to acquire new skills and new experiences to add to their enjoyment of life.

The fund started with £350, and accrued interest over the years to finish with a balance of just under £584.

The fund has now been fully distributed:

  • £120 to enable the residents of Barlow Court to attend the Barlow Institute centenary concert
  • £250 towards the cost of coach hire for a day trip organised by the North Turton Welfare Committee
  • £213.90 towards the costs of three outings organised by the Belmont Over 60s
