Freemason members representing the Lodge Light in Arabia, based in Croydon, visited The Children’s Trust in Tadworth (Thursday 8th October) to present a cheque for £2,000 to Karen Phillips, Community Fundraising Manager.
The Lodge had raised money through holding a Dinner & Dance Evening earlier in the year and also through collections from members.
Keith Jacobs, from the Lodge Light in Arabia, who volunteered in The Children’s Trust’s IT department for three years, said: "Volunteering in the IT Department for three years gave me the opportunity to view the whole of the Trust's operation and I was most impressed with the care, resources and the enthusiasm of both staff and volunteers. As a result, I wanted to help them all continue the wonderful work they do, so on my appointment as Worshipful Master I announced that The Children's Trust was my chosen charity for that year. I was most pleased with the support I had from the members of the Lodge in raising the £2,000, with the knowledge that it was going to a very worthy cause and certain that we will continue to support the Trust in the years to come."
Karen Phillips, Community Fundraising Manager, The Children’s Trust, added: “We are very grateful to the Lodge for their kind donation and interest in The Children’s Trust and its services for children with brain injury.”
