A grant of £1,289 from East Lancashire Masonic Charities has helped Rochdale Connections Trust expand their much-needed services in the borough.
Secured by Rochdale District Freemasons, the grant will help with the refurbishment of the community charity’s premises on Drake Street, which will allow them to expand their services and support more people who are most in need.
Rochdale District Charity Steward, John Taylor, said: “The Connections Trust can now expand their services to more of those most vulnerable in our community and I am delighted we have been able to support them.”
Doug Smith, the District Chairman, added: “Rochdale Connections Trust really do deliver fantastic support to those most in need, their services are excellent and reach out to those who need them the most.”
Rochdale Connections Trust provides a range of valuable support services, including work with vulnerable families living across the most deprived communities throughout the borough.
Chief Executive of the Trust, Kathy Thomas, said: “We were fortunate to receive funding from The Clothworker’s Foundation and the National Lottery for renovations to the building and simply cannot thank the East Lancashire Freemason’s enough for their generosity in donating £1,289 to furnish the area and increase our service offer to the most vulnerable members of our local community.”
Rochdale Connections Trust also received Lottery Funding in March this year:
