Bucks’ Freemasons recently donated £1000 through the Heart of Bucks Foundation to Relate Mid Thames and Buckinghamshire to purchase a new computer and some phone compatible headsets for use by the counsellors and appointments team.
We have a head office in Maidenhead, and offices throughout Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire and although Relate MTB is a member of the national Relate Federation we are an entirely independent charity, relying on fundraising to provide professional counselling to local people regardless of their ability to pay, through its Bursary Funding Scheme.
Relate MTB counsels more than 1,000 people of all ages in the local area each year, on matters such as depression, cancer (in association with Macmillan nurses), mental health issues and all types of relationship problems, (including loneliness).
Fiona Greenfield, the Centre Director of Relate Mid Thames and Buckinghamshire, said: “We would like to thank Bucks Freemasons for this very generous donation. Our appointments team and counsellors work extremely hard for our clients and having the use of a modern headset to talk will leave them able to take notes while taking calls from clients.”
Andrew Hough, secretary of the Bucks Masonic Centenary Fund, added: “Relate does extremely necessary and important work throughout our area and we are very pleased to be able to help them with this donation. It is just one of the varied ways in which Bucks Freemasons’ core values of Friendship, Integrity and Charity are used to benefit the local community and underline our commitment to assisting all the members of our society.”
