Aimee’s Story

Next

After Aimee’s father died, we supported her education and her dream of becoming a psychologist

After Aimee’s father died at the age of 45, her Freemason grandfather, Frederick, stepped in to support the family through the financial strain that followed. But eventually his savings started to run low and he turned to the MCF to help his granddaughter.

Aimee was offered a place to study psychology at Cardiff University and the MCF made sure she had all the resources and equipment she needed to study. Aimee graduated from with first class honours in Psychology and has since completed her PhD. She has also been accepted to go and study for a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, the goal she had in mind when she was first studying – “I’ve finally got there after nine years!”

I’m extremely grateful for all of the support from the MCF. They have been fantastic and have enabled me to pursue a career I really love.

I’m 19 and I’ve been coming to the Young Lewisham project for four years now. I mostly get involved with the carpentry – that’s my favourite – but I sometimes do the motorbike stuff as well. I’m really proud of the things I’ve made here, especially the big outdoor table and benches.   No matter…
