Our Trustees oversee the investment of our funds with the help of investment fund managers who are appointed by the Trustees. They also oversee the spending of the income from the Trust.
The Trustees of the Charity are always the Master and two Wardens of the Company, the Deputy Master and the Honorary Treasurer. Additional Trustees are appointed on a three-year basis. The Clerk acts as Secretary and the Honorary Almoner advises.
