Representatives of organisations and charities which were given cheques by the Freemasons
Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare were among 25 charities and organisations to benefit from Freemasons’ cash.
Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare were among 25 causes getting a donation from Masonic lodges across Devon.
The charity was presented with a cheque for £25,000 after being chosen as one of the causes the Freemasons of Devonshire will support.
Twice a year the freemasons pick 25 causes to donate cash to from its ‘Wake Fund’.
All the organisations were presented with their cheques at a special evening held at the Exmouth lodge in St Andrew’s Road by provincial grand master for the Freemasons of Devonshire Ian Kingsbury.
Among those who were given money were Friends of Exmouth Libraries and Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare.
He said: “I am delighted that the Freemasons of Devon are able to continue to contribute to these important local causes many of which are totally run by volunteers and hopefully these donations will make a real difference to the lives of many people especially in this year when we are proud to be celebrating the Tercentenary of Freemasonry in England.”
