Each year Royal Edward Lodge in Leominster donates generous sums of money to local charities. This year was no exception, and at a special presentation on 14 July 2018 at Leominster Masonic Centre, eight local charities received a total of £3,500.
The charities benefiting were Marches Family Network, Kyre Riding for the Disabled, Echo, Megan Baker House and Dementia Friendly Leominster, each of which received £500; Leominster First Responders (£400); and Leukaemia Care and the A L Lewis Fund, with £300 each. Cheques were presented to representatives of each charity, all of whom expressed their thanks to Leominster Freemasons for their generosity.
In addition, a further £625 was presented to Masonic charities which in turn support the local community: £500 to the Herefordshire Masonic Charity Association ‘B’ Fund, £75 to Teddies for Loving Care, and £50 to the Tunnard Moore golf competition.
