Last year I became aware that in the area covered by Warwickshire Freemasons over 3,000 children were currently living in hostels, Bed and Breakfasts or Sheltered Accommodation through no fault their own. Some with single parents due to domestic abuse who require protection and some due to other reasons such as family hardship due to the pandemic causing their parents to lose their jobs and their homes.

I was completely overwhelmed by the fantastic response of  Warwickshire Freemasons, their friends and family. This generosity enabled me to not only provide for those children previously mentioned but allowed me to extend the donations to disabled children in schools such as Priestley-Smith School for Blind and partially sighted children, Zoe’s Place who support children with cancer and other local charities who support disadvantaged children.

 My target was to purchase 500 eggs. We raised enough to buy 3,000, which was truly magnificent. I was able to deliver many of those eggs and to see the “Easter Smiles” on so many children’s faces was reward enough. I am unashamedly back again this year and ask you to help me exceed last years achievement.

I will again, with the help of Morrison’s Supermarket in Coventry and Buddy Bags, who help to distribute to the more sensitive locations, be able to reach out to as many as possible across all parts of our Province. As this horrible pandemic has continued it has only increased the hardship of many families and children. You can make your donation in the same way as last year on this Just Giving page. I thank you for whatever you can give no matter how big or small your donation.

Please make sure when donating you include Gift Aid as this will add a further 25%.
