SIR JOHN OSBORN (SJO) CHARITY
The Company benefited from a significant donation from the Master Cutler’s Challenge 2016 - £30,875. This allowed total donations from the Combined Company of Cutlers Charitable Trust (CCCT and SJO) of £72,800.
Distributions took place at two ceremonies in the Cutlers’ Hall in late June which allowed many of the 40 recipients to collect cheques but also to meet other small charities in the area.
