Newport Foodbank got a boost from Audley Lodge, based at the Masonic Hall in Wellington Road.

The money was made up of £500 from Newport’s Masons and a matching sum from the county’s Masonic Charitable Association.

The lodge secretary, Mark Yates, even put in a shift helping the food bank’s volunteers during the hectic lockdown period.

He said: “Charitable giving is the cornerstone of what Freemasonry is all about and it is fantastic that we are able to help out our local community.”
