The Poors Compassionate Allowance

December 2021  payments of the Annual Allowance

The Trustees of the Watermen’s Company Poors Fund were able to make a meaningful increase to amount given at Christmas to those on the Compassionate List. This is  thanks to the generosity of all those Freemen who pay quarterage and help to make payment of this very well received allowance continue.

We know how much this means to those who received the annual allowance from the lovely thank you letters and cards received. Especially in these difficult times and stressful time.

To apply for the Compassionate Allowance please contact the Assistant Clerk  for more information.
