We are feeling very grateful for the amazing £17,500 donation we have received from the Freemasons.

The latest national lockdown forced us to close our six shops and café for a fourth time, resulting in a substantial loss of income needed to support our community. This grant from the Freemasons is helping to cover the cost of food, training, household bills and living expenses for the 57 formerly homeless people we support (known as companions).

One of our companions, Graham, expressed his gratitude: “On behalf of myself and my fellow companions, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Freemasons for this huge donation.

“Any help we can get at the moment is very welcome, as things are extremely tight. This really means a lot to us.”
