This charity was established by a generous bequest of Sir William Coxen who served as Lord Mayor in 1939. The trustees of the charity are five Aldermen of the City of London appointed by the General Purposes Committee of Aldermen. The income of the charity is applied for the benefit of, or to pay over to, all or any of the Orthopaedic Hospitals of England and other Hospitals or Charitable Institutions carrying on similar work, with a preference for the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Great Portland Street). Consistent with the wishes of Sir William, the charity focuses its grant-making activities on the prevention of orthopaedic conditions in children under 14 years of age.
