Time to celebrate!

Time to celebrate!

1178780 could be any number, but for FREEDOM 2 this marks a new season. On¬†Thursday 14thJune 2018 FREEDOM 2 was registered as a charity. FREEDOM 2 had been running as a limited company in London since January 2017, but the intention had always been to be established as a charity.
