The Peter Jackson Charity was instituted in the 18th century for the purpose of paying up to 20 pensions to retired upholsterers. Today we have 7 such pensioners, and nominations are made by the Warden to the Trade’s Committee. These payments take priority, but the available surplus income is used for donations to well established City Charities and HM services charities. 10 of these are paid automatically and the Committee makes a further 12 or so donations every year.
Surplus funds are used to support a number of our causes.
