Many members in different situations have benefitted from the fund, beneficiaries include:

  • a 74-year-old member who suffered acute spinal injuries causing severe restrictions to his mobility. The Benevolent Fund paid for the purchase and installation of a stairlift. His wife was delighted that he could remain at home.
  • the widow of a Nigerian member who had died four years previously and was finding it very difficult to make ends meet whilst bringing up their children. After meetings with representatives of the Benevolent Fund and a report on the viability of the proposal, she was awarded a grant to help establish a shop, enabling her to support her family.
  • the widow of a member, who suffers from diabetes, osteoporosis and heart problems, who applied requesting assistance to supplement her meagre income. The Benevolent Fund awarded a grant to give her a sense of security and has also contributed towards a holiday.
