On behalf of the thousands of people who will turn to Relate Mid Thames & Buckinghamshire this year, and our team of professional relationship counsellors, I would like to publicly thank the Louis Baylis Trust for again supporting our Bursary Funding Scheme with a £2,000 grant.
Relate MTB is a stand-alone local charity and we rely on local donations and grants for all our funding. The continued support of the Louis Baylis Trust enables us to meet the growing need for counselling regardless of people in need’s ability to pay. In 2016-17 we provided counselling to 1,990 – and increase on the previous year and we are expecting that number to rise again in this current year.
The Louis Baylis Trust is supported by everyone who buys a copy of the Maidenhead Advertiser and the Windsor & Eton Express and, as a reader myself, I appreciate the important role that having reliable, quality newspapers plays in supporting our community, so I would like to extend my thanks also to all the staff and readers.
