Critical Care Support

When Bill Armstrongs sister in law recently collapsed, she was rushed to the Critical Care Unit of Sunderland General Hospital. Bill and the family were so impressed and grateful for the wonderful care and support that both the patient and the family received, that they decided to try to raise funds to support that unit.

On Saturday 2nd December 2023, Bill and the rest of the members of Jarrow Grange Lodge no. 8551 held a fundraising social at Jarrow Masonic Hall in aid of the Critical Care Unit. Over 100 members, family and friends were in attendance and they were treated to a fantastic evening with a wonderful buffet, entertainment from Holly Jade, the daughter of the Master of the Lodge, two lots of Bingo, a Raffle and an Auction.

All told the event raised an incredible £1230 for the Critical Care Unit and the Lodge are now submitting a request to Durham Benevolence for any top up funding that may be available.

Well done Bill and all of the Members of Jarrow Grange Lodge.
