Who We Are

The Edith Murphy Foundation is named after Edith Murphy who died on the 19th October, 2005.  In memory of her husband Hugh, who died in 1991 Edith established the Foundation in 1993 and this was approved by the Charity Commission in that year. 

Until her death Edith had funded the Foundation from time to time but on her death she left the bulk of her estate to the Foundation. 

Since inception it has distributed several million pounds for charitable causes.  It has helped charities catering for the young, the old, the disabled, the homeless and the sick as well as animals who were a strong love of Edith. 

It has also helped schools, village halls, churches, music and the arts.
