Charity information


The charitable aims of Glenthorne Quaker Centre and Guest House include: "The relief of persons in need by reasons of age, ill health, disability or financial hardship in particular, but without limitation, by the provision of facilities for rest or convalescence. "

Glenthorne is superbly matched to meet these needs; we are in a beautiful restful location and the atmosphere of the Guest House is friendly and convivial. Holidays at Glenthorne for the less advantaged are enabled by grants from our reserved bursary fund.

The bursary fund enables the following key projects:

THE WELCOME PROJECT: respite holidays for asylum seekers, refugees and their families. Glenthorne arranges these holidays in cooperation with asylum seeker support groups in the north of England.
CARE FOR CARERS: rest breaks for Carers who might otherwise be unable to take a holiday due to financial limitations.

The bursary fund is supported by approx £5K p. A. As a cost to Glenthorne's Trading Company, plus donations from Quaker meetings and individuals. We are seeking to increase the income to the fund in order to expand the work of "The Welcome Project" and "Care for Carers".

Further enquiries about our charitable work are very welcome.
