United Service Lodge of Dorset Freemasons support the Veterans' hub!

The Worshipful Master of Dorset's United Service Lodge, Roger Barnes, handed over a cheque for £305 to the Weymouth and Portland Veterans Hub. This brings the total donated to the Hub by United Service Lodge to just under £1000.

The Veterans Hub was set up to try and make services to former troops more accessible and any profits made from the Cafe at the Hub go towards continuing the hub's work. On Mondays, they close to the public so organisations such as the Lantern Trust and SSAFA can come together in one place to provide a 'one-stop' hub for people seeking help.

Since its birth the hub has continued to grow and now provides food and drink for veterans and he local community of Wyke and surrounding areas.

Wayne Ingram, a member of United Service Lodge, plays an active part of this project and as their ambassador and can often be seen chatting to those who enter its doors. The money raised by United Service will go towards sculpturing the garden area with the intention to provide veterans and members of the community a place to rest, relax and grow their own vegetables in a walled, safe environment.

The community café is located at 114a Portland Road in Wyke Regis and is open to the public Tuesdays to Saturdays from 9am until 5pm.
