Relief of Suffering

The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham was opened in 1979 as a memorial to the first wife of Sir Edward Tuckwell, Serjeant-Surgeon to The Queen, who was Master of the Company in 1981. The Company has supported the Hospice since its foundation. A limited number of discretionary grants are also made to deserving causes, particularly those associated with medicine (but not medical research) or hairdressing/barbering.
