Burgesses Trust

The charity now known as the Church Burgesses Trust has served Sheffield quietly and unobtrusively, for over 450 years.  The Trust seeks to respond positively to the needs of a large modern city through its support for: the parishes carved out of the ancient Parish of Sheffield; the work of Sheffield Cathedral; organisations working for the needy and the deprived, the elderly, the marginalised and for the revitalisation of inner city communities; the Church Burgesses Educational Foundation (schools, educational organisations and individuals).
