Bequests that stay with us

I've been thinking and writing about bequests that stay with us. The 2nd Earl of Dorset left a bequest for poor, unmarried persons in East Grinstead that is still a home for the elderly - Sackville College - and beautiful - today, four hundred years later.

One of the people who helped to run the college was the Revd. Dr. John Mason Neale, who wrote the carol "Good King Wenceslas".
