Eastnor Lodge No. 751 members have been very busy during the last months of 2020 and have made several donations through the Lodge’s Charitable Trust to assist Herefordshire based organisations. These were identified by the Lodge Charity Steward and the Worshipful Master (elected leader of the Lodge) in conjunction with all members.
The concern of the members was mainly concentrated on groups serving the community in the fields of support for children and young adults, families, blue light services veterans, health and community support in general.
The Charitable Trust was able to continue making donations during 2020, right through these troubled times, and up to the end of December 2020. Overall the Lodge managed to donate £5,300 mainly funded by Lodge members providing extra support to top up the shortfall of the funds. The shortfall had been caused by a reduction of income from alms collections, which would normally have taken place during regular Lodge meetings.
The members response to the appeal for help has been outstanding, as were the donations received into the Trust from the Eastnor Lodge main account.
Recipients of donations were:
Additionally, one of Eastnor lodge Members is volunteering for Community Action, collecting medical prescriptions, and driving residents to and from Hospital and Doctors’ appointments.
