The Order of Women Freemasons has recently donated £25,000 to the Stroke Association.
During Queen Elizabeth's 75th Platinum Jubilee Year members of the Order of Women Freemasons voted to support the Stroke Association of which The Queen was Patron. Lodges throughout the United Kingdom and Spain held fundraising events which included skydiving, cycling challenges, afternoon tea parties, raffles and dinner dances.
During a period of five months Lodges raised over £16,500 and together with funds from the Order's Grand Charitable Trust the total sum sent to the Stroke Association was an amazing £25,000.
The Stroke Association supports people to rebuild their lives after a stroke providing specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure they receive the very best care and support to rebuild their lives. Many members of the Order of Women Freemasons or members of their family and friends are grateful for the support they have received when needed.
