AWTE Benevolent

The AWTE Benevolent was formed in 1967 to support AWTE members enduring difficult times, personally or professionally. 

Since then many members have benefited from subsidies and support that have helped them through job losses, illness and bereavement, we also celebrate happy occasions too.

To support this activity, a dedicated committee of AWTE members, led by the Benevolent Chair Aphrodite Burton, spends much time and energy raising funds. Raffles offering attractive prizes are held every year and tickets for the AWTE Benevolent 100 Club Lucky Numbers are sold at AWTE events and on our website events page to make it easy for your to get involved.

The 100 Club Lucky Numbers was set up as a fun way of raising money and helping members in need. It’s really simple. You purchase your annual lucky numbers at £10 each. You are then allocated a number or numbers that serve you for the year. Each month, the AWTE Benevolent Committee draws a winner. Monthly winners receive £30. At the AGM in April the annual 100 Club Lucky Numbers winner receives £100. This could pay your AWTE annual membership! The more numbers you purchase, the greater your chance of winning! To purchase your number(s), simply give your £10 (or more) to an AWTE Benevolent Committee member at an event or buy on line, or via the dedicated form on our news page

In order to deliver benefits, we need to hear from you! Please take a moment to advise us of any member who has suffered a traumatic or celebratory event. We want our members to know they remain in our thoughts. If you have information to pass on about a member or would like to make a financial or prize donation, please contact us. All communication is in total confidence.  We have a number of members who have received support.  Click here to read their testimonials and words of thanks.
