Middlesex Division supports the Honeypot Children’s Charity with £2,500 from the Grand Sovereign’s Care for Children Fund

A cheque for £2,500 from the Grand Sovereign's Care for Children Fund was presented to the Honeypot Children’s Charity by the Intendant-General for the Middlesex Division, R.Ill.Kt. Denis Leigh. He was accompanied by his Deputy, Ill.Kt. Silverio Ostrowski, P.Gt.St.B.(C.) and Mark Masons' Hall's Charities Manager, W.Kt. Darren Coleman-Heald at their headquarters in Hammersmith, London.

Honeypot works with children between 5 and 12 years of age, who are young carers or vulnerable children. This means they either have a significant caring responsibility for a loved one at home, live in an area of extreme deprivation or are at risk of harm or abuse. 1 in 5 young people are carers.

Whilst it’s all fun and smiles at the charity office, new research from the BBC and the University of Nottingham has revealed that 800,000 secondary aged young people in England are caring for a parent or sibling. 1 in 8 young carers are under the age of 10 many of whom are caring for more than 15 hours a week. Many children often miss school and feel isolated due to their responsibilities.

These funds will go towards the provision of a new minibus to transport the children to their facilities in the New Forest and Pen y Bren, Wales.
