Bourne United Charities
Bourne United Charities (BUC) brings together 15 different charities formed from bequests and endowments left over the centuries for the benefit of the people of Bourne. The income from these charities is used to run 12 almshouses and give financial assistance to those in need. It is also used to make grants to local community projects.
BUC is also responsible for the upkeep of a number of historic buildings in the town such as the Red Hall and two important parks in Bourne; the Wellhead and Abbey Lawn. A large part of the income generated by BUC is spent on managing these facilities for the benefit of the local community.
