Two charities, The Birmingham Settlement and Freshwinds, have publicly thanked Warwickshire Freemasons for donating funds to their respective charities. Both charities received £400.

Carly Duignan (Head of Fundraising and Communications for The Birmingham Settlement) said: “We’re delighted that The Warwickshire Provincial Grand Lodge has continued to provide funding this year. Without ongoing financial support, The Birmingham Settlement would be unable to continue its work, so we’re hugely grateful as always.” Read more: The Birmingham Settlement

Founded in 1899, Birmingham Settlement is the one of the oldest charities in the city. It forms part of a movement of social reform activists outraged by the plight of the poor in the 19th century.

Steve Moralee (Director of Development for Freshwinds) said: “We are delighted that The Warwickshire Provincial Grand Lodge has provided us funding this year. The services we provide to local people cannot continue without financial support and we are delighted to receive this donation and of the continued support of The Warwickshire Provincial Grand Lodge for our work.” Read more: Freshwinds
