Have your say

A Sheffield charity has received a grant from the Freemasons’ Grand Charity.

The British Tinnitus Association, which provides support and information for people with tinnitus and their carers, received £4,000 from the charity’s Minor Grants programme.

Amounts ranging from £1,000 to £5,000 have been awarded to 18 charities across the country as part of the programme in the areas of medical research, youth opportunities, and support for vulnerable people.

Laura Chapman, chief executive of the Grand Charity, said: “The recent economic difficulties have had a detrimental effect on many smaller charitable organisations, sadly affecting their ability to provide important support services.

“We hope these latest grants will go some way to assisting these charities.”
