Every Spring and Autumn Freemasons from all parts of Devon meet to give support totalling in excess of £50,000 to local charities throughout the county who are in need of assistance. This time we were one ofthe groups nominated by one of the local lodges, the Exeter Northcote Lodge. The money is raised by the “WAKE Fund” a trust set up by William A. Kneel, the Provincial GrandMaster from 1970 to 1984, & the late owner of Kneels laundry & dry cleaners (now Johnsons).This year on 1st November, Right Worshipful Brother Ian Kingsbury JP., Provincial Grand Master for the Devonshire Freemasons, presented cheques to 20 deserving causes during a celebratory meeting at theExmouth Masonic Hall. EGC’s Trustee Helen Foster represented us & was delighted to receive a cheque for £1,250! Thank you to Alan Morgan, our treasurer, for his role in obtaining this donation.
