Masonic Charity Afternoon Presentation
Cornwall blood bikes were delighted to be asked by the Freemasons in Cornwall, to attend a charity day by on Sunday the 14th of May.
Our representative Clive Addington was aware that we were to receive a cheque at the event. On arrival in Newquay it was clear that many local charities were to be benefiting from fund raising by the Masons and over 40 received cheques.
When Clive stood to collect ours he was surprised to find that we had been donated to by the united lodge and two further individual lodges.
The Cornwall Masonic Benevolant Fund
Mount Sinai Lodge No 121
Restormel Lodge Lodge NO 856
The cheques totaled £1200 which is clearly a very generous figure and a significant help towards our funding this year.
Clive had an opportunity to talk to people and explain more of what we do. He was also able to discuss the fact we have no paid employees and that donations go directly to providing our service. A fleet bike was there and starred in various photographs.
We would like to thank all concerned for their generosity and for the hospitality shown to Clive at what was a very enjoyable event.
