Almost £2,000 has been donated to charities and organisations as part of a special fundraising evening.

The event, held by the North Wales Freemasons, saw the presentation of cheques to several organisations that play vital roles in the community.

Ian Gibbons, the Charity Steward, along with the Lodge Worshipful Master, James Gardner, led the proceedings, distributing funds to Nightingale House, 1st Kinnerton Scouts, Sandycroft Hub and Pantry, Ark Angels Pet Rescue, and Crossroads Carers Trust.

A cheque was presented to the North Wales Provincial Team for the 2028 festival, a significant event held every six years to support both national and local charities and to fund clinical research.

Phil James, Chairman of the North Wales Freemasons Charity, was present to receive the cheque, alongside Andrew Schofield.

The event featured notable moments, such as Lesley Povey, Diane Jones, and Mike Jones from the Sandycroft Hub & Pantry accepting their donation.

Beaver Leader Ryan Goodwin, accompanied by twins Leo and Oscar, received the cheque for 1st Kinnerton Scouts.

Charlotte Brown, the Community Fundraiser for Nightingale House received  her organisation’s cheque.
