The Season of Goodwill
In December each year the Brewers’ Company distributes funds from a number of our charities to beneficiaries in need. Last week, the grants issued included:
- Donations to nine elderly women in London from Dame Alice Owen’s Eleemosynary Charities which provide grants, items and services to elderly individuals in need and/or charities or organisations working to prevent or relieve poverty amongst the elderly who have lived in the Parishes of St Mary, Islington or St James, Clerkenwell, Christchurch and Spitalfields.
- Donations to seven individuals who were previously employed in the brewing industry from Mr Samuel Whitbread’s Trusts which supports poor Freemen of the Brewers’ Company and their widows, or any people in need who have previously been employed in the brewing industry or engaged in the sale of beer from licensed premises in England and Wales and their widows and children.
- Grants to fifteen charities operating in the parish of Aldenham from Richard Platt’s Relief-in-Need Charity which provides funds to relieve either generally or individually persons resident in the Parish of Aldenham who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress. Charities supported included the Guideposts Trust, Keech Hospice Care, Home Start Watford and Three Rivers and Watford New Hope Trust.
