Mason leads limb loss parliamentary group backed by PM

After receiving support from the MSF to buy a new prosthetic leg, Freemason Vernon Leigh has been selected as the northwest representative of the Associate Parliamentary Limb Loss Group, backed by David Cameron and Nick Clegg. Vernon met with MPs to discuss the provision of prosthetics direct to the NHS, avoiding the ‘postcode lottery’.

Raising funds, and his charity's profile, Tommy took his collecting box to meet the Prime Minister

When blind London mason Tommy Mulholland went to Downing Street to meet Prime Minister David Cameron there was one thing he was not going without – his precious Greater London Fund for the Blind charity box. Tommy, whose mother lodge is Castrum, No. 7603, lost his sight at the age of 47, but this remarkable mason travels around London to attend lodge meetings. He is a member of several lodges and learns the ceremonies with the aid of a hand-held voice recorder. Tommy uses public transport to journey through the capital on his own, and as well as his charity work he remains an active director of a building company.
