Fund continues to support members in times of need

Four Benevolent Fund members were helped this month at our recent management meeting. 

Charitable grants totalling £6200 were awarded to a serving officer and three retired members.

The Fund gave £300 to enable a serving officer to travel down to London for some specialised treatment.

A grant of £1,400 was awarded to a retired member to help towards much needed bathroom modifications.

A further £3000 was offered to a retired member to help towards the cost of a new central heating system.

And finally £1500 was given to a long serving member to enable them to go on holiday.

Every month we offer our support to colleagues and retired members who contact us. Please help us to spread the word about joining the Benevolent Fund.

Every Just a small monthly subscription means a great deal to those we help.
