Welcome to the Summerfield Charitable Trust
The Summerfield Charitable Trust was established by Ronald Summerfield, a Cheltenham antique dealer, shortly before his death in 1989.
During 2013 we donated £457,833 to a wide variety of good causes throughout Gloucestershire. We paid a total of 79 grants ranging from small grants of £500, to larger grants of over £20,000. The average grant payment was £5,800.
