Recently two lodges within the Masonic Province of West Wales received Grants to give to their local, chosen Charity. Both Narberth Lodge and the Peter Drewitt Daylight Lodge of the Freemasons presented a cheque of £600 each to Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.
George Bancroft, a member of the Narberth Lodge said “We are always open to suggestions when it comes to choosing a local charity to support. This Year a vote was not needed, Paul Sartori Hospice at Home was chosen and passed by all members.”
Phil Thompson MBE, the Chair of Paul Sartori said “We are extremely grateful of the support we receive from The Freemasons. This Grant was applied for to fund two new bath hoists costing £295 each. These are very popular items for our equipment loan service and are used so much that there is a high level of replacements required. Our equipment department delivered over 1176 pieces of equipment in 2017 – 2018.”
