Honorary Almoner
 
The Honorary Almoner has a discretionary fund which can be used in cases of extreme emergency. Should a Stationer become aware that a fellow Stationer or member of their family requires help, they should contact the Honorary Almoner to discuss the situation in the first instance.

The Honorary Almoner is also available to provide advice and moral support for Stationers and their families who get into difficulty.  He also arranges for the widows and widowers of members to attend the annual Cakes and Ale Event (see main image).
