News: In memory of Ken Mason

With great sadness we share news of the tragic passing of our friend and great supporter of The Connection, Ken Mason. Our thoughts are with all his family and friends.

Ken raised more than £20,000 for The Friends of The Connection at St Martin’s, a charity close to his and his family’s hearts. The Connection works with people who are rough sleeping to move away from, and stay off, the streets of London. What they do focuses on working alongside people as they recover from life on the streets and move towards a meaningful, fulfilling future. A copy of the citation made by Margaret Beels when his work was recognised at Friends Day in 2022 can he found here.

The family have asked us to express their thanks for the kindness shown to them and also for the donations to The Friends made in his name through their Ken Mason JustGiving page, which has raised more than £4,000 at the time of writing and includes monetary donations from the friends of Ken Mason on his Memorial Day Celebration.
