Acton Aid was formed in 1973, when a small group of men from Iron Acton decided to set up an informal organisation to organise events for the benefit of local residents, with surplus funds going to help good causes in the local community. They also offered their services free of charge to projects that would enhance village life.
Little has changed in that time, other than Acton Aid now has over 40 members, the organised events have become larger with a very loyal following and have become part of the village calendar. These events allow us to generate significant funds for good causes and charities.
Today Acton Aid’s mission continues to be:
“Raising money for the support of our local good causes”
Acton Aid is a “Community Interest Company”. The chairman is elected annually and he chooses a charity of the year that the group will also support through bucket collections at events.
If you are a resident of Iron Acton or an organisation within the village and need assistance or help, please contact us on a confidential basis to discuss your needs.
Please send an email to the secretary with your contact details and a brief description of how Acton Aid may be able to help.
