North Wales MasonicBenevolent Association (NWMBA)Receives Update on Grant Given toAlex Wilson

The North Wales Masonic Benevolent Association (NWMBA) was very pleased to able to give a donation, on the Brethren’s behalf, to young Alex Wilson in 2016 to assist him in the purchase of a special wheelchair so that he could pursue his dream of competing for Wales in the sport of Wheelchair Basket Ball.

Alex, who suffers from a condition known as FFU meaning his bones are of varying lengths for which he has undergone numerous operations at Alder Hey Hospital over the years, has kept in touch with us and we are delighted to hear that recently Alex and his team the “North Wales Knights U15” won Gold at the Lord Taverns’ Junior League National

Championships. This is a fantastic achievement given this is the club’s first attempt at a major national junior title, with the team having gone through three previous rounds of 12 matches and 3 very well contested matches undefeated.

This was all achieved with the help of his new RGK Elite Sports chair for which he is truly grateful to the Masonic Province of North Wales!

I’m sure the Brethren of North Wales would join with me in congratulating Alex on his achievements so far and I have no doubt that he will have many more successes ahead of him. GO ALEX!
