Solomon Cox Educational Charity
In 1853 Solomon Cox of Canton Manor, Farningham set up a charity for the education of poor scholars from Farningham. The deeds of this charity have now been changed to give control of its funds to the Governors of Anthony Roper Primary School. The Governors wish to use this fund as a vehicle for raising money for the school from the wider community and will use the fund to enhance the educational experience of all pupils at the school. At present the value of the fund lies at around £1,000 but plans are being made to generate further income.
