Mr Les Hutchinson the Chief Operations Officer of the Masonic Charitable Foundation visited the Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks before the start of today’s West Kent sponsored Pantomime performance to celebrate publicly the partnership between The Young Lives Foundation and The Masonic Charity Foundation. YLF is an independent charity organisation for young people which delivers tailored services supporting over 3,500 vulnerable people in our region each year. The YLF was wonderfully represented by Neil Vickery who took to the stage to tell us all about their work in costume as Lenny the Lion accompanied by Lucy Wheatley.
Sevenoaks Powerchair Football Club (S.P.F.C.) were on stage too to receive a specialist powerchair presented to them by West Kent Masons represented on this special occasion by Mr Brian Saunders. Mr Matthew Stevens accepted the donation on behalf of the S.P.F.C. and told us all about the wonderful effect powerchair football has on the lives of the people who play. He also said how ownership of this specialised powerchair will have on their ability to encourage more people to take up the sport of powerchair football.
Mr Roland Stokes, who does a wonderful job organising the annual West Kent Freemasons Performance of the Stag Theatre’s Pantomime said how pleased he was to “see so many people enjoying themselves in the theatre” and how being there makes such a “difference to the lives that it touches”
