Donation to Manchester

The Trades House of Glasgow agreed at a meeting on the 24th May to donate £5,000 to the victims of the Manchester terrorist bombing, via the British Red Cross Appeal. The donation will come from its charitable funds.  The House observed a minutes silence at the start of its meeting. 

Deacon Convenor, Keith Brown OBE, said; "Everybody is shocked and appalled by this terrible outrage.  For those affected it will be life changing as they adjust to the loss of loved ones of injuries that will take years to recover, if at all.  The least we can do is show practical support for the families and demonstrate to a fellow historic trading city that we share their grief."

The Trades House, which was established in 1605, is now a registered charity widely viewed as a centre of excellence in the administration of trusts and legacies.
