The Managing Trustees continue to operate and develop the Worshipful Company of Plaisterers Charitable Trust (‘The Plaisterers’ Charity’) independent of the Livery Company, in accordance with the terms of the Trust Deed, dated 1 July 1980, and as required by Charity Law. They continuously monitor the Trust’s Objects and modus operandi, and review their strategy on an on-going basis at their regular quarterly meetings, and by electronic communications between meetings, if necessary.
The Company disperses donations in line with the Trust Deed from funds donated from within the membership of the Company and the wider public. The Charity Trustees meet regularly to discuss applications and determine where funding is best placed for maximum effect.
The Plaisterers’ Charity: Registered charity number 281035.
Any donations are gratefully received.
Leaving a Legacy
The Company’s Charity Committee currently administers over £2m in funds, which enables us to give grants totalling about £80,000 each year to a number of small plastering craft, City, musical and armed forces charities. However, there is an urgent need for us to give more money. Will you help us do that?
Leaving a legacy in your Will is a simple way of doing that and it will make a big difference to the small charities that we support. You might be able to do that simply by making a codicil to your Will without making a new Will. A legacy is tax free to your estate since your donation will not count towards the taxable value of your estate. In addition, if you leave 10 per cent or more of your estate to charity the remainder benefits from a reduced inheritance tax rate, meaning a greater share for your other beneficiaries.
If you would like to leave a legacy to our Charity Fund please get in touch with the Clerk who will be happy to give you details for your Will or codicil.
