Youthline, a charity based in Bracknell, received a grant of £9,000 from the Berkshire Freemasons.
The donation has been made by the Berkshire Freemasons through their national charity, The Masonic Charitable Foundation. The grant will be used by Youthline to help with their running costs over the next few years.
Youthline has been supporting young people in Bracknell Forest and the surrounding area for over 30 years. It provides a confidential counselling service to young people attending secondary school up to adults. In 2019, Youthline was voted the ‘2019 Charity of the Year’ in Bracknell Forest.
Collette Reynolds, Practice Manager, said: “We cannot thank the Berkshire Mason enough for this donation. It will help us continue offering our counselling services to the young people across Bracknell Forest.”
Anthony Howlett-Bolton, the senior Freemason in Berkshire, said: “Youthline do a tremendous job in supporting young people throughout Bracknell Forest. We are delighted to help support them in this incredibly worthwhile work.”
