Chiltern Centre Needs Your Vote for £25,000 Freemasons’ Award

The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children needs your votes to receive £25,000 from Oxfordshire Freemasons.

The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children is appealing to all its friends and supporters 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 The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children 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. Those who want to vote should visit the MCF website, select the Oxfordshire page and vote for the charity of their choice. The vote closes on Monday 31st July.

Paul Barrett, Chair of Trustees at The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children said:

“A grant of £25,000 would make a huge difference to our work. I would urge anyone and everyone to go online and vote for The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children. 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.

James Hilditch, Provincial Grand Master from Oxfordshire Freemasons said:

“We are proud to be able to support many charities across Oxfordshire, 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.”
