Fresh boost for Devon Air Ambulance

Devon Provincial Grand Master Ian Kingsbury and Provincial Grand Charity Steward Barry White have presented a cheque for £4,000 to Devon Air Ambulance on behalf of The Freemasons’ Grand Charity.

This brings the total presented to the service by the Grand Charity since 2007 to £47,000, and more than £105,000 when adding presentations made by individual lodges throughout Devonshire in the same period.

Tracy Owen from Devon Air Ambulance said that the service costs around £5.5 million each year to maintain. From this autumn, the air ambulance will be extending its operational hours to midnight.
