Every year, Freemasons from several Daventry lodges get together to make a joint donation to a local recipient, which is chosen by the Worshipful Master of each lodge in turn
This year it fell to the Worshipful Master of Coritani Lodge No. 8079, W Bro David Smith, to select the beneficiary and he chose the "Friends of Danetre Hospital".
W Bro David chose a charity close to his heart as his mother-in-law is one of the unfortunately growing number of people suffering from Alzheimers and alongside his wife Liz, he requested that the hospital direct the £3,000 donation to support those suffering from this illness.
W Bro David and his wife Liz presented a cheque to Bro Chris Long, the Chairman of Friends of Danetre Hospital, who is himself a member of Danetre Lodge No. 8584 in Daventry.
