We were delighted to welcome representatives from the Devonshire Freemasons to our office last month. The Masonic Charitable Foundation has awarded us a grant to support the continued delivery of our support services in Northern Devon.
Our Northern Devon team was on hand to discuss the ways in which the grant will enable us to continue to provide sensory loss, limited mobility, and hidden disability support. It ensures our sight and hearing loss advisor can now begin to meet people face to face through prebooked appointments, offering information and support with sensory loss, loneliness, and limited mobility.
“We are delighted to have been awarded the funding from the Masonic Charitable Foundation. The funding ensures we can continue to provide support to disabled people and people with sight and hearing loss. Our specialist team will be able to provide information and advice on sight and hearing loss equipment and how to access services online. They will also be able to signpost people to relevant support services in their area”.Diana Crump – CEO Living Options Devon
“I’m very pleased we’ve been able to help Living Options with their hugely important project aimed at some of the most vulnerable people in our community. Loneliness can lead to severe health issues, with some experiencing health problems similar to severe stress. The pandemic has made reaching them even more difficult. This is money from Devon Freemasons returning to help communities in Devon, that’s very good to see.”R.W. Bro Ian Kingsbury – Freemasons in Devon, the Provincial Grand Master
A huge thank you to the Masonic Charitable Foundation for the grant and their interest and support of our charity. You can read more about the day and the Devonshire Freemasons on their website here.
