The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust is appealing to all its friends, supporters and service users to vote online to help us 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 Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust 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: mcf.org.uk/vote, select the Wiltshire page and vote for the charity of their choice.
The voting period is from Monday, 12 June until Monday, 31 July.
Jennie Shaw, Director at The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust 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 Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust. 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.
