Bedford Centre Clinical Lead Fiona Di Leo was delighted today to receive a generous donation of £900.00, raised by the members of the Manor Court Masonic Lodge of Ampthill.
The cheque was presented by Lodge representative and former Bedford Counselling Centre service user, Shandor Nikitits. “I really benefitted from the counselling I received at the Bedford Centre,’ he said. “It made me feel like a valued person and helped to increase my confidence at a very difficult time.“ Shandor chose the Counselling Foundation as one of his nominated charities during his recent year-long tenure as Worshipful Master.
He thanked his colleagues at the Ampthill Masonic Lodge for their participation in the fundraising events that enabled him to present today’s cheque. He said: “If what we do helps just one person, it will be worth it.”
Thanks to this generosity more people in Bedford will now be able to access weekly subsidised counselling.
