Alan Naylor, the local Freemason who was instrumental in arranging the grant, said: “There are children as young as five years old caring for a sick or disabled parent or sibling. They face a childhood of isolation, anxiety and stress as part of their daily lives. During the Covid-19 pandemic, those challenges have been exacerbated. Young carers need Honeypot’s support more than ever. I hope this very worthwhile charity can soon return to providing much needed residential respite breaks.” Simmi Woodwal, Chief Executive of Honeypot, thanked the Freemasons for the grant, saying: “We are very excited with the prospect of brightening the lives of incredible Honeypot children in the weeks and months ahead. Thank you again for your commitment to help young carers – it is giving them hope for a happy childhood, even during a crisis.” Charity Donation Creates A Buzz Continued from front page Allotments Fund Bids Farewell to Maureen Local charity Dibden Allotments Fund were very sad to see the retirement of their longest serving Trustee Maureen McLean.
