Clubs are reminded that the County Benevolent Fund, a charitable fund, exists solely to help Surrey
bowlers (who are or have been affiliated members of the SCBA) and their dependants who from age, illness, infirmity or any other cause are impoverished or in distressed financial
Recent seasons have seen a decline in the number of applications as members have passed away. Hardly any new applications have been received in recent years which is a surprise to the Trustees as the law of simple averages dictates that some individuals, and possibly families, are living very close to the breadline. Club Secretaries are asked to examine their current membership and if they are unsure whether any of their members qualify for the Funds assistance then please contact the Hon. Secretary or Hon. Treasurer who will be only too pleased to give you further information and assist in compiling an application.
The Benevolent Fund has ample funds at present to help in extreme cases and the Trustees hope that this will encourage Clubs to apply for future grants which are usually paid out just before Christmas.
