Freemasons donate £1000 Children’s Heart Unit at Glenfield Hospital

The Worshipful Master OF Harrington Lodge No 5098 Philip Laing and his lady wife Dilys raised £830 at their Ladies Night last year, at which they held a raffle and an auction. Together with support from the Harrington Lodges charity account and Long Eaton Masonic Benevolent Association (LEMBA), They have been able to present a cheque for £1000 (£500 from the raffle and £500 from LEMBA) to The Children’s Heart Unit at Glenfield Hospital where their granddaughter received life-saving surgery just 7 days after she was born.

They also subsequently presented a cheque for £500 to Treetops Hospice, Risley.
