A South Yorkshire charity needs your votes to receive £25,000 from Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons

Autism Plus Logo CMYKAutism Plus is appealing to all its friends, supporters and service users to vote online to help them receive a £25,000 Community Award from the Freemasons.

As part of Freemasonry’s 300th anniversary celebrations, the Masonic Charitable Foundation is distributing three million pounds to 300 charities across the country, and Autism Plus is one of those selected.

Each of the nominated charities will receive a grant, but the public vote will determine how much they receive, ranging from £4,000 to £25,000. Those who want to vote should visit the MCF website https://mcf.org.uk/region/yorkshire-west-riding and vote for the charity of their choice. The voting period is from Monday, 12 June until Monday, 31 July.

Katie Mitchell, Marketing Manager at Autism Plus said:

“A grant of £25,000 would make a huge difference to our work. I would urge anyone and everyone to go online and vote for Autism Plus. Please remember that every single vote counts.”

The Masonic Charitable Foundation obtains all of its funding from Freemasons and their families.  It is estimated that half of Freemasonry’s total charitable expenditure of over £33m goes to charities that help people in communities across the country.

David S. Pratt from Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons said:

“We are proud to be able to support many charities across Yorkshire, West Riding, but in this special 300th anniversary year we want to involve the public, as well as local Freemasons, in deciding which of the nominated charities should benefit most. I urge everyone to visit the website and vote.”
