The Horners Charity Fund

Charity description

The Horners Charity Fund logo
We are the charity of the Worshipful Company of Horners in the City of London.

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 2018 our Master, Gordon Haines, chose “Fitter for Mission” as his charitable cause for the year.  This initiative is part of the Salvation Army Hoxton Community Centre in London.  The objective is to transform an empty, unused roof space into a multi-use, wellbeing community space that can be accessed by lift.  HCC focuses on the community of the 50+ in Hackney, Islington and the City.

The Space will be part of the Drop-in/Day Centre which already includes activities such as a Reading Group, Arts and Crafts activities, Music and Quizzes and a recently started initiative focused on weight loss.  The Well being roof garden will be specifically geared towards the growing number of 50+ residents with an onset of dementia, depression and other mental health issues who will benefit from the fresh air above street level.
