Financial support for elderly 'Wests'
The Charities of John and Frances West for Pensioners were founded in 1710 and are administered by Christ's Hospital.
The Charities provide small pensions or grants to elderly (aged over 60) people who are in financial need, hardship or distress. The Trustee is required to give preference to members of the West family. Single people with an income (net of housing costs) of up to £10,000 per annum and couples with joint income of up to £15,000 may be entitled to an annual pension or grant of £600. This is awarded annually for a three year period and may be renewed.
If you, or anyone you know might benefit from this kind of support, please contact:
