Devonshire proud to help

The Provincial Grand Lodge of Devonshire has match-funded the Grand Charity in order to present £2,000 to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

Established in 1944, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity last year gave over 5,000 grants and funded another 72 charities to provide vital services to soldiers in need, giving veterans and their families the support they need through times of crisis.

The Devon Soldiers’ Charity Fundraising Committee is equally active, raising more than £63,000 last year and giving grants of over £70,000 to assist 109 individuals in need of help.

When presenting the cheques, Ian Kingsbury, Provincial Grand Master of Devonshire, said: ‘To be able to support the soldiers who have served the citizens of this country so selflessly is very humbling.’

Upon receiving the cheques Col Robert Jordan MBE said: ‘We are deeply grateful for this generous donation.’
