An Awards Luncheon was held at the Hall on 26 April for students and staff from educational establishments currently supported by the Tallow Chandlers Benevolent Fund. The event provided an opportunity for members of the Company to meet the outstanding young people to whom we make awards and bursaries, as well as those who work with them.
