Every year for the past fifteen years, a weekend charity event has been organised at the Esplanade Hotel, overlooking Fistral Beach in Newquay, for #Freemasons in Devon & Cornwall and their friends.
For the past few years, this event has been organised by Mike & Lesley Davis of Brent Lodge, Topsham and supported by Freemasons from all over Devon. At this years' event held in February £1,100, (£1,375 after Gift Aid is added) was raised in total over two nights and donated to the Dream-A-Way charity, a Devon based charity who provides grants to individuals with additional needs / disabilities for their holiday / day trips.
Chairman of Dream-A-Way, Mr Jeff Merrett MBE said “Dream-A-Way were honoured to receive a massive cheque for £1,100 from Lesley and Mike Davis of Exeter. The money was raised by them and their friends from Brent and other groups and I am extremely delighted to have received this stunning amount of money and wish to sincerely thank Lesley, Mike and their friends for such generosity.”
