Midlothian masons boost cancer charity

A CANCER charity has received a second major donation within a year.

Children with Cancer and Leukaemia Advice and Support for Parents (CLASP) was featured in the Channel 4 series The Secret Millionaire in October last year and received a £50,000 donation from entrepreneur Ivan Massow.

Now members of masonic lodges in the Province of Midlothian – including Lodge Dalhousie Bonnyrigg 720, Lodge Newbattle St Mary 1063, Lodge Dalkeith Kilwinning No. 10 and Lodge St Leonard Loanhead and Lasswade No. 580 – have used their fund raising skills to come up with another £60,000.

Midlothian’s top mason, Brian Kerley, chose the charity to benefit from a 15-month long series of fundraising events.
