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.

The Joseph Rank Benevolent Fund Deed of Trust says that pensioners should reside in the Hull area (which includes Cottingham, Hessle and Kingswood) 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.
