Case Study: Jake


Jake is 21. He had always dreamed of working in film and television, but the financial pressures on his family after his parents divorced led him to believe he would never be able to pursue his dream. The situation was made worse when his mother was diagnosed with cancer, and was made redundant a few years later. Jake’s grandfather, a Freemason, put him in touch with the Trust. A week after his grandfather died, Jake was accepted as a beneficiary of the RMTGB, gained a place on his chosen course to study Screenwriting and Producing, and secured a place at Ruspini House. The Trust has contributed to Jake’s university fees, and has helped with the cost of specialist equipment for his course including a laptop and printer. Jake is comforted by the knowledge that his granddad knew Jake would be cared for by the RMTGB before he passed away.
