We were lucky enought to have a visit from St Peters Lodge, Bromyard and below is the write up from the Herefordtimes website
Megan Baker House has over recent years, been supported with donations from Herefordshire Freemasons, particularly from members of Royal Edward Lodge in Leominster. Now, Paul Beaumont, Worshipful Master of Saint Peter's Lodge in Bromyard, has initiated further support with a donation of £750 towards activities such as the REACH OUT project.
Paul and his wife Elizabeth were made aware of the "deserving nature of this local charity", now in its second decade of activity, when working with Megan Baker House Chief Executive, Lee Gough, at various fund raising events. Paul, and Freemasons generally, appreciate that the charity does not receive statutory funding and does not charge for its services, and therefore needs as much support as possible. Richard James, charity steward in Saint Peter's Lodge, stated that "local Freemasons will hopefully continue to assist Megan Baker House in its vital and fundamental role within the wider community."
Zoe White, office manager at Megan Baker House, emphasised that such support was essential to maintain the services of the charity "which provided an important pathway towards maximum physical independence of the individuals concerned."
