One of Birmingham’s oldest charities, The Birmingham Settlement, was thrilled to receive a further regular donation of £400.00 recently from the Warwickshire Freemasons.
As long-standing supporters of the charity, The Freemasons have been involved since 2007, helping the charity achieve their aims of relieving poverty and hardship by helping individuals and communities to overcome social exclusion.
Speaking about the recent donation, Carly Duignan, Head of Fundraising and Communications said, “We’re delighted that The Warwickshire Provincial Grand Lodge has continued to provide funding this year. Without ongoing financial support, The Birmingham Settlement would be unable to continue its work, so we’re hugely grateful as always.”
The charity works by influencing policymakers, and challenging the status quo with the aim of creating a harmonious, cohesive and enhanced environment offering opportunity and choice. Recent and on-going projects at The Settlement include an Ageing well programme, debt advice and counselling, and community regeneration and development projects.
