The award-winning Vectis Radio 4Ps project has received a financial boost thanks to the generosity of local Freemasons.
The project, which helps young people with additional needs improve their confidence and communication abilities by using radio, is a registered charity.
After a recent visit, Island resident Tim Lewis was so impressed with the work the project and the station does for the local community that he arranged for a donation from his Masonic Lodge.
The cheque for £250 from Vectensian Lodge, based in Ryde, was presented by Tim to Maggie Currie, one of the charity’s trustees.
“The work that the 4Ps does with young people is amazing and we have seen some outstanding results. Much of our work is funded by the benevolence of others and on behalf of the board of trustees and the future students of the 4Ps I would like to thank the Master and the Brethren of Vectensian Lodge for this generous donation.”
“Following my recent visit to Vectis Radio to see the fantastic work that the 4Ps project does in improving the lives of young people on the Island, I had no hesitation is applying for a donation from my Lodge. One of the founding principles of Freemasonry is charitable giving and being able to donate to such a worthy local cause underlines that commitment to society.”
