Barrie Hodge, Head of Fundraising from St. Basils said:
We are absolutely overjoyed that the Worcestershire Freemasons have decided to support our much needed work in the Bromsgrove area
This fabulous grant will enable us to employ two full time support workers to help young people regain the stability they need to rebuild their lives, gain new skills, employment and a place of their very own to live. We are very grateful to the Worcestershire Freemasons for their generosity.
Worcestershire Freemason, Robert Vaughan said:
“I’m very pleased we’ve been able to assist St Basils. They do an outstanding job with support services to help young people through very difficult times to develop the skills and confidence to move on.
