Double boost for Spectrum Project

Bristol Bears Community Foundation has received another significant boost to its Spectrum provision, as the Olympia Masonic Lodge pledged its support to both Golden Memories and the ongoing development of the Disability Journalism Programme.

Spectrum, the Foundation’s provision for special educational needs and disability (SEND), dementia support and over 55’s physical activity has benefited once again from the sporting heart of the Nailsea Lodge.

Sharing a heart for bringing sport and physical activity to the most disadvantaged individuals, the relationship between Olympia and the Foundation will once again change lives in the greater Bristol area.

“We are hugely grateful to the continued support of the men of the Olympia Lodge, whose contributions have not only been incredibly heartfelt, but incredibly well timed also."

Kris Tavender, programme manager

Programme manager, Kris Tavender said: “We are hugely grateful to the continued support of the men of the Olympia Lodge, whose contributions have not only been incredibly heartfelt, but incredibly well timed also.

“We have been recently undertaking a huge development of our Disability Journalism Programme, with a view to making it a much more bespoke experience for students with significant access challenges, but also a real aspiration for pathways into the world of media.”
