Hereford Society for Aiding the Industrious... Hereford Society for Aiding the Industrious
John Venn established this charity in 1841 for the relief of poverty in the city of Hereford. The Society had two main principles: the truest charity is that which enables the working man to maintain himself and his family in comfort and independence by his own prudence and industry; and that the upper classes are bound by all considerations of benevolence, of morality, and above all, of religion, to try to place every man in a situation which will enable him to do this.
