MMC Grant to Hillingdon Citizens Advice

The Middlesex Masonic Charity (MMC) has just awarded the sum of £2,710 to the Citizen’s Advice, Hillingdon.

Although most of the equipment that is required is a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis and for volunteers who work from home, the MMC also specified that the odd sum of £710 should go towards the protective screens that are required in the office for clients who wish to visit and talk face-to-face.

Although COVID-19 related grants are a priority the MMC will still consider other applications when they can.

Once again this is a great example of how Middlesex Masons work within the local community.

Often this type of assistance and support may go unseen by those who might benefit from the HCA’s services.

A Thank You –

Jill Harrison, Interim CEO at Citizens Advice Hillingdon said she would like the Freemasons of Middlesex to know what a huge difference this grant of £2,710 will make to their ability to support the Borough’s most vulnerable people through the dreadful crisis of COVID-19. She sends her thanks to all from the bottom of her heart.
