OLD CESTREFELDIANS' TRUST LTD

Recognised as a Charity by HMRC. (Company Reg. No. 8905242)

The Trust has been formed with the aim of providing an educational legacy for 11 to 21 year olds in Chesterfield to be funded, at least initially, by Old Cestrefeldians. There are four Trustee / Directors, all OCs including a solicitor.

There are two strands to this intended legacy.

One is to gather together, preserve and display artefacts and documents relating to Chesterfield (Grammar) School over its long history.

The other is to offer students in the Chesterfield area, prizes, awards, scholarships etc. to assist and reward their efforts over a wide range of educational, artistic and sporting activities. This will involve liaising with the Heads of local schools and Chesterfield College to identify areas of possible need and deserving recipients.

We have already been active in the promotion of a successful summer exhibition at Chesterfield Museum and the autumn restoration of the School’s War Memorial boards to their original site in the old School building on Sheffield Road, including the addition of another WW2 name. In addition, with the help of Chesterfield Civic Society, a ‘Blue Plaque’ has been placed on the Sheffield Road building.

We are also pursuing a suitably accessible permanent home for the large and growing collection of School artefacts and documents gathered by John Roberts et al and currently safely stored.

The Trust's status as a Charity enables us to claim Gift Aid tax relief on donations (including Members’ subscriptions), and Inheritance tax relief will apply to legacies to the Trust.

Please support our aims by becoming a Member. The minimum annual subscription is £10.00, and we would be grateful if you could complete this membership form. One-off donations will also be gratefully accepted.

If you may be able to help the work of the Trust in any way, please contact us.
