The Grand Charity

A local charity in Leamington Spa has received a grant of £3,000 from the Freemason's Grand Charity. British Blind Sport helps blind and partially sighted people get active and play sport. Sport and recreational activities can enhance the lives of people with visual impairments, by improving their health and increasing their social interaction. British Blind Sport encourages adults and children to participate in activities at all levels, from grassroots to the Paralympic Games.


The Fundraising Manager for British Blind Sport, Ian Carr commented, "We are incredibly grateful to The Freemasons' Grand Charity for its generous donation of £3,000 to British Blind Sport. This donation will go to our Sport Development programme which aims to give sporting and leisure opportunities to all visually impaired people throughout the UK. The programme includes taster days, coaching and competitions for VI children and adults as well as educating providers of sport (i.e. PE teachers, sports clubs and coaches) how to be inclusive when delivering sport to include visually impaired people. Physical activity can help visually impaired people in so many ways and we'd like to thank The Freemasons' Grand Charity for helping us make a visible difference through sport."

The Freemasons' Grand Charity is dedicated to helping people in need, and has donated over £120 million since 1981. Each year, The Freemasons' Grand Charity provides relief grants for hundreds of individuals who are experiencing financial difficulty, as well as donating millions of pounds to nationwide charitable projects and services.


The Freemasons’ Grand Charity receives its funding from Freemasons around the country and locally from the Freemasons in the Province of Warwickshire.
