Every year, freemasons from the several lodges meeting in Daventry get together to make a joint donation to a local recipient chosen by the Worshipful Master of each lodge in turn.
This year it fell to the Worshipful Master of Coritani lodge, WBro David Smith to select the beneficiary and David chose the “Friends of Danetre Hospital”.
WBro David’s mother in law is one of the unfortunately growing numbers of people suffering from Alzheimers and he requested the hospital direct the £3,000 donation to support those suffering from this dreadful illness.
The photograph above shows WBro David Smith and his wife Liz presenting a cheque to Bro Chris Long, the Chairman of Friends of Danetre Hospital, who is himself a member of Danetre Lodge in Daventry. Also looking on is WBro Dick Godwin, the Senior Group Officer for the South West of the Province, who co-ordinates the annual donation.
