Help us receive up to £25,000 from Cumberland and Westmorland Freemasons

Chrysalis (Cumbria) Ltd 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.

Here at Chrysalis we are creating a sensory garden at our day centre in Wigton for our members who have a wide range of disabilities to explore and enjoy. 

Our Garden before our Sensory Garden project begin. We have already chosen the winning design from a competition held at the local Nelson Thomlinson School to create an image of what the garden may look like from over 100 entries!  This design will provide a garden full of enrichment, fit to stimulate all the senses and accessible for all our members.

A grant of £25,000 would make a huge difference to our work. We would urge anyone and everyone to go online and vote for Chrysalis (Cumbria) Ltd. Please remember that every single vote counts – So after you have voted please tell all your friends and family so they can vote too!

The Masonic Charitable Foundation is giving away £3 million to 300 charities across England and Wales to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England and as part of their special 300th anniversary year they want to involve the public, as well as local Freemasons, in deciding which of the nominated charities should benefit most.

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 mcf.org.uk/vote, select the Chrysalis (Cumbria) Ltd page and vote for the charity of their choice. The voting period is from Monday, 12 June until Monday, 31 July.

It’s up to the public to decide which charities get the largest grants through an online vote at www.mcf.org.uk/vote.

Help us to win the £25,000 so our dream design can become reality!

The vote is open from 12 June – 31 July 2017.

 To vote for Chrysalis (Cumbria) Ltd to win up to £25,000, visit mcf.org.uk/vote scroll down to Cumberland Westmorland and select Chrysalis.
