One of the major objects of City Livery Companies is Benevolence. In the year ended 31st March 2016, the Worshipful Company of Launderers Benevolent Fund (an authorised Charity) contributed over £28,000 to various causes. This included many donations to be used within the London Borough of Southwark, the City and individuals who have worked within the laundry industry requiring support, as well as grants by the Education Fund for ‘Travelling Scholarships’. Donations have recently been made to help enable the Southwark Cathedral Girls’ Choir to visit Krakow and to arrange for the Company to be involved in the annual Magical Taxi Tour to Disneyland for Children with Life Threatening illnesses.
The Master’s charity for 2017 – 2018 is Haven House Hospice.
