Pensioners & Over 55's


The Joseph Rank Benevolent Fund principally helps retired persons on low incomes by paying a small quarterly allowance – currently £45 - to beneficiaries. This does not affect any benefits received i.e. Pension Credits or Housing Benefit as it is treated as a charitable gift.

If you are over 55 and have a long term health condition we will also consider your application.


The Joseph Rank Benevolent Fund Deed of Trust says that pensioners should reside in the Hull area (which includes Cottingham and Hessle) and have done so for the past ten years. They will be on a low income and not have more than £10,000 in savings.  

If you think that you qualify or there is someone you know you think they might be eligible, please give me a ring and we can follow up the enquiry with an application form.


Ring on 01482 225542 or contact us via this website.
