In October 2015 The Trinity Chapter 2595 joined forces with their mother Chapter Pleiades 710 to host a very successful combined ladies evening which was held at the Royal Seven Stars in Totnes.
On the night £600 was raised and it was agreed by the respective first ladies that this magnificent sum would be donated to the Derriford Hospital NICU “Keep Me Close Appeal”.
Derriford NICU covers the whole of the South West Peninsula the next equivalent unit being located in Bristol.
At present Derriford have four rooms which are available for use by parents whilst babies are undergoing lifesaving treatment.
The “Keep Me Close Appeal” aims to raise £2m for the construction of much needed additional accommodation for parents and siblings use during this very traumatic time.
Application was made to the Most Excellent Grand Superintendents Personal Fund, resulting in an additional sum of £2,000 being donated to the “Keep Me Close Appeal”.
