During the pandemic the demand on food banks has increased, so a £750 donation from the Knole Lodge of Freemasons to the Bournemouth Food Bank has been welcomed.
Over the last four years the lodge has donated £3,000 in cash and kind, including toys, knitted items and ornamental garden wheelbarrows.
The food bank is run in partnership with local churches and is based in St George’s Methodist Church.
Paul, who is master of the lodge, said, “It’d been harder than usual to raise money this year, but our members have again stepped up.
“We’ve supported the food bank with money, toys and other donations and know how it really help improve the lives of families, particularly at Christmas.
“But the food bank works the whole year helping those in our community who need it.”
John, office manager of the food bank, said, “Knole Lodge are strong supporters of ours and help in practical ways, giving their money and time.
“We receive assistance from other lodges and everything donated makes a real difference to the lives of people in the area.”
