Andrea Pering is grateful for the outstanding and skilled care she received from the staff of Fortuneswell Ward at Dorset County Hospital two years ago. Andrea and her husband Ray wanted to give something back to the team who cared for her. So, when Ray became Master of Chesil Lodge Freemasons he was able to nominate Fortuneswell Cancer Trust as his charity of the year. Ray Pering said: “I simply couldn’t fault any of the staff, nor the treatment. Many people suffer from cancer – family and friends of patients too – all receive excellent care at Dorchester Hospital. It is second to none. So, I decided on the Fortuneswell Cancer Trust, which supports local patients in hospital and which does such a tip top job.” The Chesil Lodge of Freemasons is based in Victoria Square at Portland. It raised £1,300 from raffles and events during Ray’s time as Master, which comes to an end on Wednesday 1st April.
