The Rainy Day Trust was established in 1843 to help those who have devoted most of their lives to working in manufacturing, distribution or retailing in the DIY/Hardware, Housewares/Pottery & Glass, Builders Merchants, Garden Supply and Brushware industries. The Trust provides an essential source of financial assistance to those who qualify.


For example, we can help by:


•  Providing an annual charitable grant

•  Mobility equipment and installations

•  Travel expenses to see distant relatives

•  Nursing home or residential care fees

•  Trade volunteers visit beneficiaries

•  Food hampers at Christmas

•  Assistance with utility bills

1 hour legal advice and telephone counselling


The Rainy Day Trust is the industry body that helps us 'look after our own'.
