Hereford Hospital received a £98,000 ultrasound 4D echocardiogram machine, following a three-year appeal supported by local Freemasons.

Claire Cassidy, the British Heart Foundation fund-raising manager for Hereford and Worcester, said that the machine ‘places Hereford at the forefront of cardiac screening’.

The region has a higher-than-average incidence of heart disease, and the demand for cardiac screenings is on the rise. At the Heartbeat Appeal presentation, Herefordshire Deputy Provincial Grand Master, the Reverend David Bowen, expressed his pleasure at local masons’ input.

Make Headway

Headway, a registered charity and the UK’s leading brain injury specialists with over 120 separate facilities nationwide, has received £1,000 from Herefordshire masons in their latest backing for the organisation.
For the past 22 years, the charity has supported over 1,000 local people, and is currently treating 102 participating members.
Richard Thompson, the Charity Director, said that 40 percent of those attending the centre have suffered a stroke, while the next highest category attending was as a consequence of road accidents.
The latest masonic donation will enable Headway to continue providing art therapies to a number of members who have responded well to such treatment.
