Dorset Freemasons go green!

The Amphibious Freemasons Lodge in Wimborne have showed their commitment to the care of the wider community by supporting a local charity, The Greenwood Club with a donation of £510.

The Greenwood Club is part of the Dorset Area for Outstanding Natural Beauty project 'Stepping into Nature'. They aim to provide positive shared experiences and memories for those living with dementia and their amazing carers. The members learn green woodworking skills, rural crafts and cooking outdoors in relaxing woodland surroundings.

Amphibious Lodge Charity Steward, Stew McKell met with the Club, at their site in the woods of Holton Lee, he spent some time with the group, then presented the cheque to Club volunteer Jill Hooper. He was asked by several of the carers how the monies were raised and he explained how Freemasons across Dorset raise money to help support local charities.

Provincial Grand Master of Dorset Freemasonry, Graham Glazier said, 'I am delighted that Amphibious Lodge have decided to support such a worthy local charity, The Greenwood Club activities are designed to help individuals with Dementia gain a sense of achievement, which is terrific for their self confidence and independence.'
