Torbay Masters donation to RNLIW. Bro. Gordon Cook of Torbay Masters’ Lodge who meet in Paignton can be seen here presenting a cheque for £200 to Mark Cridel, Coxswain of the Torbay lifeboat who are based in Brixham.

Following his return from a recent ‘shout’ W Bro Cook selected the RNLI in memory of his late father, a Master Mariner, and the long association of the Freemasons and the RNLI, the former having been in existence since 1717 and the latter since 1824.
