Kibworth Charitable Trust is a grant making charity and our aim is simple: to raise funds to be shared with local organisations, clubs and societies, charities and individuals who need some financial help to achieve their goals.
The Trust is largely funded by donations from villagers and local businesses who want to give to the community and with those donations we seek to support a diverse range of village initiatives, so as many people as possible can benefit, whatever your interests, abilities and stage in life.
The trust was conceived in early 2013 to facilitate Kibworth’s first family music festival – KibFest - in memory of a much loved Kibworth man, Adam Bennett. KibFest raised an amazing £12,000 for two local organisations close to Adams heart, Kibworth CE Primary School and Kibworth and Smeeton Juniors FC, thanks to the overwhelming support of local businesses, volunteers and everyone who came on the day.
The Trust’s trustees - Trina Ward and Kate Foster - look forward to working with the wonderful people of our lovely villages to build on the success of Kibfest and continue to grow the Trust year on year.
