The Master Poulter’s Pelican Trust
The Worshipful Company of Poulters is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. In 1368, the Company received the power to regulate the sale of poultry, swans, pigeons, rabbits and small game. The Company, which was incorporated under a Royal Charter of Charles II on 13th June 1665, is no longer an association of tradesmen that retains its ancient powers, but now operates as a charitable institution as do most of the other Livery Companies.
Its Pelican Trust exists "for the relief of poverty, sickness and distress or any other charitable need within the City of London and other London boroughs and for such other charitable purposes as the trustees may in their absolute discretion from time to time see fit".
