A generous five-figure grant will pay for 14 new specialist beds to accommodate the needs of disabled residents living at Martha Trust.
The substantial £16,900 sum has been donated to the Mercury’s Charity of the Year based in Deal by the Mark Benevolent Fund for Freemasonry.
Provincial grand master Archibald Iain Torrance of the Mark Province of Kent and provincial grand master Roger Richardson of the Mark Province of Sussex presented the sum to staff at their premises at Hacklinge.
It comes amid a funding deficit for the worthy cause which has missed out on holding fundraising events due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
