Support the Scottish Licensed Trade Benevolent Society

Supporting The Ben is easy and there are many ways to help. Each year, we need to raise £300k to support former and current members of our trade facing financial, social and emotional difficulties. Please take a moment to see how you can help us reach that figure this year.

How We Help



We helped John by arranging transport to and from hospital to enable him to complete his chemotherapy sessions without waiting for hours for additional transport.
