Harborough Mail celebrates The Market Harborough and The Bowdens Charity’s achievements

It was a surprise when, flicking through the Harborough Mail this week, we spotted a photo of Mark Brown handing over the key to the Old Grammar School last October.

However, reading further into the article, we were pleased to see that The Market Harborough and The Bowdens Charity was being celebrated for its great charitable achievements.

The charity was behind WW Brown & Sons recent £400,000 restoration of the Old Grammar School, and has been involved in other large projects within the town, including helping to keep the town’s museum open and providing a donation for the spire of St Dionysius church.

The charity donates money to organisations or individuals in the Market Harborough, Little Bowden and Great Bowden areas.

Steward Jim Jacobs used the article to discuss the charity’s aims for the future: “Our principal aim is to husband the assets that we have, and pass them on to the next generation intact.”

“The demands on the charity are increasing as the squeeze continues and people fully understand what we can do.”

“We have the funds to support all sorts of ventures. It’s giving the money away, and giving it away in a manner that engenders sustainability, which is the biggest challenge.”
