Freemasons donate £15,500 to Charities in Cheshire

This post was originally published on this site

At the recent Samaritan Installation held on January 31st, the outgoing Master, WBro Geoff Newsome, distributed cheques to various charities to the tune of £15,500.

This was the amount of money that Geoff had raised in his year as Master.

The main benefactors were Springfield’s Special School in Crewe, awarded £5,000. This cause is very close to WBro Geoff and his wife Marie’s heart.

Other Charities to benefit were: –

  • Sandbach Talking Newspapers
  • St Luke’s Hospice Sandbach Scouts
  • Masonic Widows
    and many more local charities.

In addition, Teddies for loving Care (TLC), received a cheque for £1,000, presented by WBro Geoff Newsome to WBro Ron Evans, TLC Provincial Officer, and the Area 3 TLC officer WBro Jonathan Sacha.

Many people have benefited through Geoff and Marie’s hard work, and WBro Ron Evans would like to personally thank on behalf of Cheshire Masons.
