Grant helps Surrey residents connect with the world

Tuesday, 13 June 2017

A group of Surrey residents who find it challenging to communicate because of their profound and multiple learning disabilities are being helped thanks to a £15,000 grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation

The grant to the Us in a Bus charity will be used to help fund two interaction practitioners. They will be supporting 86 people, mainly in the Reigate and Banstead areas, the majority of whom do not use words to express themselves and find it very difficult to communicate and connect with the world around them.

Victoria Goody, chief executive of Us in a Bus, said: ‘I was delighted to welcome Bill Caughie [pictured] and his fellow Surrey Freemasons so they could see the impact that our work has on people’s lives and the huge importance of their donation.’
