Funds amounting to over £100,000 were awarded to ICE members and their families by the Benevolent Fund, following a July meeting to discuss applications for assistance.

Money awarded will help members with a variety of circumstances, including help with living costs, medical expenses, specialist equipment purchase, house repairs and adaptations. It will also support widows and relieve temporary financial hardship.
The Benevolent Fund marked its 150th anniversary in 2014 with a new brand, website and a suite of new services.
“The number of applications to the Benevolent Fund is increasing since we expanded our range of services and more members hear about what we can offer,” explained Benevolent Fund chief executive Kris Barnett.
“It’s so important for the membership to continue to support their Benevolent Fund by donating the suggested £10 contribution at the time they renew their ICE membership. This will help us to provide for the increasing demand from those experiencing difficulties.”
