Guildford Poyle Charities is a registered charity that was established nearly 400 years ago by Henry Smith who left money to help vulnerable people in need or distress in Guildford. The money was invested wisely in the purchase of land known as the Poyle Estate which is today the Old Town Mill and Pewley areas of the town. Since then it has sold most of this land and has amalgamated with other small charities.
It remains committed to its original ideals and today distributes around 250 grants annually to help people in need with items they would not otherwise be able to afford. The charity also gives grants to organisations working with such people in Guildford.
We welcome donations at any time so that we can help more people in Guildford. Please either send a cheque to the address on the Contact Us page or get in touch with the office by e-mail or telephone for more information on how you can help.
