Founding Member, 94 year’s old, Norman Harvey, presented the Lodge’s donation to Claire Sullivan, CEO of NEWCIS (North East Wales Carers Information Service)
Norman said: 'NEWCIS is a fantastic local charity. With its headquarters here in Mold they provide a range of support services to unpaid carers in the counties of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. Helping school aged children, who have to balance their own education with family needs, through to elderly full-time carers looking after loved ones. Mold Lodge was founded in 1985, meeting at The Masonic Hall in Earle Road. Over the years, we have made donations to NEWCIS on more than one occasion but this is our largest ever single donation.'
'I would like to thank Mold Freemasons for their generosity, particularly during these challenging times. The donation will go towards young carers activities during Carers Week which will take place this summer,' said Claire Sullivan. 'It was great to meet Norman and his fellow Members, we are grateful for their long-standing support.'
Phil James, Chairman of the North Wales Freemasons’ Charity, paid tribute to Norman, 'Freemasons use four important guiding principles to help define their path through life: integrity, friendship, respect and charity. Congratulations to Norman and Mold Lodge for supporting their local community.'
