Hunt Staff Benefit Society and Hunt Servants' Fund

At a time when the future livelihood of Hunt Staff is under such threat, the Hunt Staff Benefit Society, a Registered Friendly Society providing pensions for those employed in Hunt Service, is campaigning hard to ensure that the future financial security of Hunt Staff is assured. In order to help achieve this, a number of different fund raising initiatives are held each year, which need the support of all hunting people to guarantee their success.
