History: The late Mr Austin Edwards lived in Warwick and for several years carried on business in the town as a photographic manufacturer. He was also a councillor of the Borough of Warwick and remained deeply interested in Warwickians and Warwick affairs generally. During his lifetime Mr Austin Edwards gave generously to the Corporation of Warwick.

When Mr Austin Edwards passed away in 1944 he bequeathed his residuary estate to a Charity now known as The Austin Edwards Charity Trust.

Area of Benefit: The Charity is able to make Grants for a wide range of charitable purposes for the benefit of residents of the old Borough of Warwick (generally post code CV34).

The income of the Charity is limited and grants offered will generally be no more than £300.
