Jeff Wood was handed £800 for the East Coast Hospice, charity of choice for the lodge ladies’ night in memory of Coral Bryant, an early passionate supporter of the hospice.
Catherine Ladbrooke of Nelson’s Journey, a charity that helps bereaved children, received £500, the proceeds of the Christmas meeting.
Monica Bates of Sunbeams Play was handed £500 for the autistic children’s centre, the lodge master’s chosen charity for his year in office.
