Root & Branch Award + Charitable Impact

Past Winners of the Root and Branch Award
The R&B medal

We are more than just a social club. One of our fundamental objectives is to raise funds for charity as well as to reward and recognise contributions made by Liverymen to the wider aims of the Livery. This is undertaken through support for various City charities and the Club’s annual Root & Branch Award.

The Root & Branch Award was created in 2014 to celebrate the Club’s centenary and honours exceptional contributions within and across Livery Companies.

Nominations for the 2024 Root & Branch Award are now being invited to be submitted by the closing date of Tuesday, 2nd April 2024.

Each year on appointment, the President nominates two charities to support.

Additionally, but just as importantly, the Club provides support to charity through its Benevolent Fund. Annual grants are made to the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, and the Sheriffs’ and Recorder’s Fund. Other causes regularly supported by the Club are Treloar’s School, the Royal British Legion, the Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch Appeal as well as the biennial British Red Cross Christmas Market held in the Guildhall.

The Club’s Charity number is 212532 and our details on the Charity Commission website can be found here.

The City Livery Club exists to unite the Livery and promote fellowship.
