We were honoured to welcome Surrey Freemasons Bill Caughie and David Olliver to North Block this month to see the work that a £15,000 grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation will be supporting. Bill and David met Victoria (CEO) and Renée (Business Development Manager) and then went to observe a local Interactive Session at a Care Home in Redhill where the team support 3 residents with profound learning disabilities. They very much tried to remain just observers but found themselves drawn into the Session by the participants!
Bill said “we are very pleased to be able to help Us in a Bus, who are doing wonderful work with very vulnerable local people, giving them a chance to communicate in the best way possible for them.”
Returning to the office they met Jen Fookes, whose son attends The Bus Stop. Jen was able to describe the positive impact the team have had on his life.
Victoria said “we are very grateful to the Masonic Charitable Foundation for their generous donation. Us in a Bus depends on donations and fundraising to enable us to provide our unique service, to really make a difference to people who have profound and multiple learning disabilities. I was delighted to welcome Bill and David so they could see the impact that our work has on people’s lives and the huge importance of their donation.” Victoria Goody
