The Horners Charity Fund
The Worshipful Company of Horners is one of the 110 City Livery Companies. It is governed by a Royal Charter granted in 1638 and supports the traditions of the City & the Lord Mayor. The Horners traditionally were the Guild governing the fashioning of animal horn into a wide variety of utensils and objects. Being made of keratin, a natural plastic, the Horners have, since 1944, supported the Polymer & Plastics Industries.
For 2019 our Master, David Giachardi, chose Sands ("Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Charity“) as his charitable cause for the year. Sands is a national charity that supports anyone affected by the death of a baby, works to improve bereavement care and research to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.
The Masters seeks to raise funds to support:
- Sands hosted training days at London Hospital for Health professionals to develop the knowledge, insight and skills to provide sensitive care to parents who experience the death of a baby.
- London Lights of Love event held during December to give families the opportunity to remember their babies and
- Sands Memory Boxes which provide a place for parents to keep memories in the brief time they have with their baby.
