Freemasons donate to our breast care unit

A fundraising ball has prompted a donation to West Norfolk Breast Care Unit by Freemasons in Hunstanton.

The Martin Folkes Lodge has given £500 following a request by organisers of the ball at Lynford Hall in Mundford on Saturday 30 June.

Worshipful Brother Peter Irons said: “Breast cancer is something which touches many, many families and we were happy to give to the cause. The enthusiasm of the ladies organising this event persuaded us to make the donation.

“The money was raised during the year in which Worshipful Master John Eaton was at the helm.”

The black tie event, being organised by women who have benefited from the unit’s care, includes a three-course meal, live band, disco, raffle and auction. Tickets are £55 and available by calling 07789 005895
