Peter Birtwistle Trust
Funding from Triodos Bank supported the development of 12 new bungalows for this charitable trust based in Colne, Lancashire. The trust was established in 1951 with a legacy from Peter Birtwistle. Born in Colne, but having emigrated to Canada as a young man, he asked that his money be used to house elderly people in the area. Applicants for the charity's supported accommodation must be 60 years or over and have been born in Colne or have lived there for at least ten years.
