Emily Lyttelton Charity Event

Hagley Park at Hagley Hall will be open to the public for the day on Sunday 10th May to raise funds for the Emily Lyttelton Fund.

The charity today gives funds to help those that have a medical illness and require financial help in Hagley and surrounding areas. 

Emily Lyttelton was the first wife of William Henry Lyttelton, Rector of Hagley from 1847 to 1884.  He set up a fund in her memory to provide a nurse for midwifery and cases of non infectious diseases in this parish and (at the discretion of the Trustees) in any adjoining parishes. Over the years four smaller charities, dating back to the early 18th century, have been amalgamated into the Emily Lyttelton Fund.  There is no longer the need to provide either midwifery services or ‘clothing for the poor’ but, there are still opportunities even in this day and age to ease the burden which some have to carry.  A body of eleven Trustees who include Lord Cobham, Rev. Newton and Father Paul Harrison administer the Fund and Charities and do what they can to bring some relief in cases that are brought to their attention.

The park will be open from 10.30 - 4.30pm (last entrance at 3pm)

Entrance will cost £5 per person or £10 for a family ticket 2 +2
