About the Olive & Norman Field Charity

Morris Grange Respite Care Home - 1964

The Olive & Norman Field Charity was established in 1985 following the sale of Morris Grange – a property given by Olive & Norman Field, a humanitarian and philanthropic couple, to the British Red Cross in 1947 to use as a holiday home to provide respite care for those in need.

As times and needs changed, it was agreed with the Charity Commissioners that a new charity would be established to administer the proceeds of the sale of Morris Grange, and to use the income from investments to provide grants in line with the original wishes of Olive and Norman.

The Trustees' aim is to remain as loyal to the aims of Olive and Norman as changing demands permit, and to assist people in need, whether through illness or because of a change in personal circumstances or an exceptional culmination of events where financial support could improve their quality of life.
