The donation was made up of £500 from the brethren of Samuel Pepys Lodge, which meets at Huntingdon, plus a further £500 from the Provincial Grand Charity.

CHUMS Charity currently delivers nine services across Bedfordshire, Luton, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough supporting children and young people that have suffered bereavement and trauma.

There are times when everyone in the family needs a little help, not just the child who has been referred, so their ethos is to support the family as a whole wherever possible.
