    Funds will be expended by grants of pecuniary relief or pensions in any form, in the following proportions:

    Part A

    For the relief and pensions to needy persons of either sex whose legal domicile is in the Island of Jersey, who have rendered service to the Island of Jersey either in an honorary or remunerated administrative or clerical capacity, or whose ancestors were employed or engaged in such in service to the Island, but excluding persons who are actually in receipt of grants or benefits under the Fund known as "The Alice Raynor Fund".

    Part B

    For relief to sick and aged persons of either sex and of any age or denomination whatsoever, resident in the Island of Jersey, in addition of or otherwise to any pension or relief which such sick or aged person may already be in receipt of and to include grants or pensions in support of any institution or Home other than owned and administered by public funds, which has for its object the relief of sick and aged.

    The Ann Alice Rayner Fund was created by Alice Blason née Colclough was the wife of Charles Henry Blason and widow of John Edward Rayner, late Lord Mayor of Liverpool. In her Will, she gave the residue of her personal estate to the States of Jersey for the creation of a fund to be known as the Ann Alice Rayner Fund.
