    The Scottish Wine and Spirit Merchants’ Benevolent Institution was founded in Glasgow in 1864 and the East of Scotland Licensed Trade Benevolent Institution in 1887.  They joined forces in 1976 to form the Benevolent Society of the Licensed Trade of Scotland, shortened to THE BEN.

    The BEN has 19 Directors from every section of the trade.  They give of their time freely, helping to raise funds, manage the Charity and visit each of their beneficiaries in their own home every year. 

    Each of the 63 beneficiaries receives a Christmas Gift and a Holiday Gift together with an Annual Pension.  Grants for temporary emergencies are also paid to any former or current drinks and hospitality employees, or their dependants, where there is a need, at the discretion of the Directors. 

    The BEN also contribute to HIT scholarships to assist young people within the trade in improving their careers and also supported BBN by sponsoring an award at their annual dinner.  The charity works in association with Breathing Space, a confidential phone helpline run by the NHS.  They also work closely with Hospitality Health In providing mental health support through their online courses.

    The charity owns 18 bungalows on Duke of Edinburgh Drive, Pitlochry, permanent homes for mainly retired people and people in need.  A subsidised rent is charged.  One of the bungalows is used for respite and The BEN works with Shared Care Scotland to allow carers to receive a well earned break.

    In 2022 the BEN introduced a cost of living grant for those working within the trade who were finding difficulties with the increased prices for food and fuel.  If you work or have worked in the trade and need financial help contact the BEN.

     

    All funds raised in Scotland stay in Scotland.
