Dorset Freemasons help Swanage school feed the vulnerable.

Dorset Freemasons help The Swanage School provide meals for the vulnerable. The Dorset Freemasons Charity (DMC) have provided £1000 of funding to help start up a project by Swanage School. The school are providing healthy and nutritious meals to those most in need in their local area.

Not only has the DMC provided this much needed funding to 'seed' the project but the Dorset Masonic Bikers Chapter plus De Moulham Lodge have played their part too. Members of the Lodge & Chapter have committed to delivering these meals by motorcycle three days each week. Teams of the Bikers undertook their first session on VE Day in sweltering conditions.

Commenting on their first session, Trevor Barrett, leading for the Bikers said 'We did our last delivery in a street where a street party for VE day was going on.... when completed the delivery we set off only for the whole street to clap and applaud as we rode down the street… it was so humbling, to be playing a small part in our community'

Project coordinator at Swanage School, Andrea Napman, expressed her thanks to Dorset Freemasons not just for the finding but also for their practical help on the ground. Deliveries of food to vulnerable people in Swanage continue regularly with the Dorset Masonic Bikers on the road each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Graham Glazier, head of Dorset's Freemasons said 'we are delighted to support this wonderful initiative; we are actively looking to support project like this across Dorset. Many congratulations to Swanage School for their excellent work.
