A host of charities in 1066 Country have benefitted from donations from the Freemasons. Charles McIlwrick, MBE and members of The Hadrain Lodge in Bexhill recently presented six cheques to local charities and organisations. ADVERTISING Charles was the Master of the Lodge until mid-November when he then handed over the reins to Bernard Stonestreet. During his year the Lodge managed to raise £3,500 through a variety of fundraising functions. A cheque for £600 had already been donated to Chestnut Tree Children’s Hospice Arundel. This was £300 from the Lodge and £300 match-funded from The Sussex Lodge Charities.
