Weston Hospicecare has received a second donation from the Masons of Woodspring Lodge in the space of seven days in memory of a former member.
Lindsay Wilkins was a respected part of the Yatton lodge, and spent his final days at the hospice’s Uphill base last year.
Since then, the Woodspring chapter has been fundraising on behalf of the hospice, and current lodge master Tony Price and Lindsay’s widow Cheralyn Wilkins today (Friday) visited Jackson-Barstow House to present their latest cheque to the charity.
Tony handed over the £385 proceeds from the lodge’s ladies night, which is described as the highlight of the group’s social calendar.
Tony said: “Lindsay was such a pivotal part of the lodge, and the hospice also cared for a friend’s daughter too.
“It was a real eye-opener, and so if we can continue to support the hospice in any way, we will do.”
And Cheralyn, who previously spoke of the hospice’s support for her husband, added: “Lindsay would be incredibly proud of what has come to the hospice in his name.”
Community fundraiser Rachel Mansfield said Weston Hospicecare was grateful for the continued support of Woodspring Lodge.
She added: “The lodge has made two donations in the past week, which is very much appreciated by everyone at Weston Hospicecare.
“Support such as this is what enables us to continue supporting people with life-limiting illnesses – and their families – across Weston-super-Mare and beyond.”
