Hundred of Elloe Lodge helps Care Charity

The Masonic Ladies Night, organised by The Hundred of Elloe Lodge, raised £670 from a raffle arranged by Almoner, Roy Mead. Heather Allan, as the wife of the Worshipful Master of the Lodge, chose the charity – The Carers Sitter Service to be the recipients of the money.

The charity provides volunteer sitters to allow carers a break from their role, whether it be to go shopping or meet friends for a coffee. Mrs Allan said the service helps her mother, Alethea Barnsdale, and frees-up time for her to meet her sister who shares the caring role with her. “We are so grateful to the service,” she said. Sitters spend time with those needing the service and meet their needs in the same way as a family member.

The service is based in Bourne and volunteers are always welcome.
