Shropshire RCC is appealing to all its friends, supporters and service users to vote online to help them receive a £25,000 Community Award from the Freemasons.
As part of Freemasonry's 300th anniversary celebrations, the Masonic Charitable Foundation is distributing three million pounds to 300 charities across the country, and Shropshire RCC is one of those selected.
Each of the nominated charities will receive a grant, but the public vote will determine how much they receive, ranging from £4,000 to £25,000.
Please vote for us on the MCF website: https://mcf.org.uk/region/shropshire/.
Julia Baron, Shropshire RCC's Chief Executive, said:
"A grant of £25,000 would make a huge difference to our work. It would support 100 young people needing transport assistance (moped or electric bike) to access work or work based training in Shropshire, though our Wheels2Work project. I would urge anyone and everyone to go online and vote for Shropshire RCC. Please remember that every single vote counts."
The Masonic Charitable Foundation obtains all of its funding from Freemasons and their families. It is estimated that half of Freemasonry's total charitable expenditure of over £33m goes to charities that help people in communities across the country.
Provincial Grand Master from Shropshire Freemasons said:
"We are proud to be able to support many charities across Shropshire, but in this special 300th anniversary year we want to involve the public, as well as local Freemasons, in deciding which of the nominated charities should benefit most. I urge everyone to visit the website and vote."
