Local Freemasons Save Lives With Donation For Wales Air Ambulance

North Wales Freemasons have presented Wales Air Ambulance based at Caernarfon, with a donation of £4,000 from their national charity, The Freemasons’ Grand Charity.

The Freemasons Grand Charity has been a regular supporter of air ambulance charities in recent years, donating £1.7 million in total to twenty-two rescue services since 2007. Every air ambulance charity in England and Wales has received funding. During 2016, Freemasons around the country will be presenting their regional rescue service with donations totaling £192,000.

Air ambulances rely on voluntary donations to operate. Support from grant-makers like The Freemasons’ Grand Charity means that doctors and paramedics reach patients in emergency situations as quickly as possible – saving lives in the process.

Making the presentation on behalf of the Grand Charity W. Bro. Hywel Wyn Jones, North Wales Communications Officer, conveyed the good wishes of the Provincial Grand Master, Ieuan Redvers Jones, and said: “We are delighted to be able to show our support for Wales Air Ambulance once again. The Wales Air Ambulance plays a vital role in the support and rescue of those injured on the mountains or more inaccessible places within North Wales. Charitable giving is central to Freemasonry and North and Mid-Wales Freemasons are especially happy to support organisations that help to save lives and provide support to people in emergency situations. The Freemasons’ Grand Charity works on behalf of all Freemasons in England and Wales, donating millions of pounds to worthy causes every year.”
