Wildy's Book of the Month - August 2010Some 40,000 people belong to over 100 City Companies within the Square Mile of the City of London. These organizations are commonly referred to as livery companies, and date back as far as 1155 in the case of the Worshipful Company of Weavers.
This book answers the many questions posed about this social and charitable livery activity, and for the first time data from the annual accounts of the charities controlled by the City Companies is collated to show just how extensive is the financial support provided by them to a huge range of charitable endeavours not only in London and nationally but also internationally.
