Established in March 2020, the Gelder Charitable Trust was founded with the objective of providing assistance to individuals employed in the building construction industry in Lincolnshire, in the event of unexpected and potentially life-altering occurrences. Our primary goal is to offer some financial relief to families who are experiencing the financial burden brought on by illness, disability, or sudden loss of a loved one. Thanks to our fundraising efforts and the support of Gelder Limited, our charity has disbursed over £5,000 to beneficiaries and has provided valuable assistance to numerous families.

Registered charity number: 1188741

Apply for Funding

If you are a construction worker (family member of, or close friend) who has experienced a life altering event such as illness or death, our charitable trust is here to support you - we invite you to apply for funding and assistance during these challenging times.
