Old Buckenham almshouses

 Assist the Almshouses

Do you have a little time to spare? Would you like to volunteer for a new role within Old Buckenham? The Robert Cocks Almshouse charity is looking for new trustees to help manage their almshouses on the village Green. Experience with building maintenance would be beneficial, although not essential, as would an understanding of financial planning and/or the needs of our older population.  A willingness to help other people is the most important quality they are looking for in a Trustee. 

The Robert Cocks Almshouses Charity consists of 10 homes in a Grade 2 listed building, founded in 1860. It provides accommodation for the residents, who need to be over 55 years, with a strong connection to Old Buckenham and can demonstrate a need for assistance. Working with a board of fellow trustees, the role would particularly suit someone from the local area who is able to attend a minimum of four meetings a year. Pre-Covid, meetings are normally held at 7.45pm on Tuesdays. To apply please send a brief application letter, with details of any relevant experience or interests, by email, in confidence to the Chair, Canon Steve Wright, at
