Cambridge Freemasons continued their support of the local community by presenting a cheque for £600 to the Red Hen Project. The funds were raised at a raffle at a recent meeting of Scientific Lodge and included matched funding by City & University of Cambridge Masonic Charitable Trust
Lodge Secretary Tony Barrios attended Arbury Community Centre to present the cheque where a play group was in full swing. He said: 'I’m really pleased to make this presentation today – it’s clear how the Red Hen Project is helping so many children and their parents.'
Home School Project Worker Maria said: 'We run four groups within Cambridge, allowing parents to visit with their pre-school children and giving them access to guidance and support from project workers. Your generous donation will be used to provide resources, such as play equipment to run these groups as well as refreshments for the children and their parents'.
The Red Hen Project is a small local charity working with primary schools in North Cambridge. They support children and their families to overcome barriers to learning and provide a link between home and school. Red Hen family workers work one-to-one with children and families in their home, at school, and in the community. The Red Hen Project also run a range of outreach group activities; parenting courses, coffee mornings, drops-ins, workshops, family activities, trips, and volunteer opportunities.
