Walsham-le-Willows is a beautiful Suffolk village with colour washed cottages and a flint-clad church that is picture-postcard perfect.

It’s also home to philanthropist Richard Martineau and his wife Diney who have made a charitable gift in the form of some of its most historic cottages with the aim to transform the lives of local communities long into the future.

A lasting legacy for a better Suffolk. Hand in hand with Suffolk Community Foundation they are passionate about preserving the heritage of their village by helping its people and also meeting the needs of others across the county.

These are some groups that have been funded by The Martineau Fund’s grants panel:

  • Bury St Edmund’s Women’s Aid Centre
  • Home-Start in Suffolk
  • Mid Suffolk Citizen’s Advice Bureau
  • Our Special Friends
  • REACH Community Projects
  • Suffolk Cruse Bereavement Care
