On Tuesday 13th June 2023, Past Master Cutler and Chairman of the Trustees of the Cutlers’ Combined Charitable Trust (CCCT), Mr Ken Cooke, presented donations to charities and organisations on behalf on the Master Cutler.

The Cutlers’ Combined Charitable Trust (CCCT) has donated a total of £43,406.00 on this occasion to 30 different organisations to support the outstanding work of those making a positive impact in the South Yorkshire Region. The donations are supporting a variety of issues that cover education, health & wellbeing, extreme poverty to name but a few, and aim to make a difference to as many individuals as they can. The Cutlers’ Company has a long tradition of supporting charitable causes in the South Yorkshire Region, and we are proud to continue this tradition through the Cutlers’ Combined Charitable Trust.

For a charity to be considered for funding from us, they must provide a service that benefits communities within the South Yorkshire region, either on their own or through partnerships with other organisations in the area. We also prioritise charities that have not received funding from us in the past to ensure that we are supporting a diverse range of organisations. Charities that have received funding from us before can still apply, but they may have a lower chance of receiving funds compared to new applicants. By having these criteria in place, we aim to distribute our charitable support fairly and effectively throughout the region.

We hope that our support will help these organisations and charities to continue their valuable work in the community and help make a real difference to the lives of those they serve.
