Essex Freemasons support Stisted Hall to get buggy refurbished

Saturday, 04 September 2021

The Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court, lovingly known to Freemasons around Essex as Stisted Hall, has thanked Joshua Nunn Lodge 2154 for their support in providing funds to refurbish a resident's buggy this summer

Joshua Nunn Lodge No. 2154 donated £1000, which has been used to purchase new roll-up sides for the resident's buggy and the funds will also assist in the refurbishment of the hairdressing salon. Jim Gage (Charity Steward) and Steve Pearson (Assistant Charity Steward) made the recent donation in August on behalf of the members, which was gratefully received by House Manager, Agnieszka McDonald and Vice Chairman of the Friends of Stisted Hall, Nigel Oldacre. 

As a direct consequence of the pandemic, Stisted Hall has had various fundraisers cancelled, including the usual summer fete supported by Freemasons across Essex, and the response from the members of The Joshua Nunn Lodge was to make a donation with the specific purpose of creating something valuable to get the residents out and about again. 

Situated in the beautiful countryside of Essex, Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court is a Grade II listed property with stunning period features dating back to 1825. They provide residential care and dementia support for up to 50 residents with permanent care or short stay respite breaks.

Agnieszka said: 'The home is very grateful to the members of Joshua Nunn Lodge for their generosity and these new sides to the buggy will make a big difference when the residents go out visiting the village, driving around the safari in the grounds as well as having picnics by the river.'
