Young people in Cambridgeshire will continue to receive free, confidential and professional support from Centre 33 following a £660 donation from local Freemasons.
The donation was made by Thirkill Lodge, which meets in Cambridge and include matched funding from the City & University of Cambridge Masonic Charitable Trust. The cheque was handed over by Lodge members Bob Golding and Eddie Osborne to Michelle Birch at Centre 33.
Michelle Birch, Head of Operations, Projects and Communications for Centre 33 said: "At Centre 33 we are seeing increasing numbers of young people in need of support with their mental health or their practical issues. Every donation from the community means we can see more young people. It also means we can ensure our hubs are equipped with comfortable furnishings, that our staff teams have the equipment they need and that each young person we see has the best possible experience when their need is high. This donation from Cambridge Freemasons is so appreciated and will go a long way towards making a positive impact in the lives of young people.”
Eddie said: “Bob and I really enjoyed visiting Centre 33 and learning about the wonderful work they do – the mental health of young people is very important and we’re pleased to be able to help”.
