|The Ludlow Palmers raise money for the Conservation Trust for St Laurence, Ludlow; Charity Number 1114678|
LIVE HISTORY - BECOME A LUDLOW PALMER
Members of the medieval Ludlow Palmers Guild paid an annual membership fee (equivalent to £220 in today's money) to help members “reduced to poverty by theft, fire, shipwreck or other mishap or wrongfully imprisoned anywhere in England, to provide assistance during temporary sickness or incurable disease or as a dowry for sisters of the Guild on their marriage or entry into religion”.
Founded in 2006, today's Conservation Trust for St Laurence and its fund-raising arm — the Ludlow Palmers — support the repair and conservation of St Laurence's fabric and historical treasures. Membership in the modern Ludlow Palmers is based on positions assigned to medieval Guild members: Palmers, Stewards and Wardens. In addition, modern Ludlow Palmers may join the Guild Circle.
