When Ian Parkinson became Master of Pilling Lodge, No. 7879, at Preston in West Lancashire, he wanted to help Blackpool-based charity Donna’s Dream House
The charitable trust provides free holiday experiences for children and teenagers with life-threatening illnesses, and for recently bereaved siblings and their families.
At the opening of refurbished accommodation at Donna’s Dream House, Ian presented charity founder Len Curtis MBE with a cheque for £36,755. In addition, Ian presented Len with the keys to an eight-seater minibus, to be loaned to the charity – fuelled, insured and serviced – for an initial period of 12 months.
