‘Durham Freemason’s on Par’
With social distancing being a priority, Stephen Willis representing Durham Freemasons was on course for a ‘Hole in One’ when meeting up with fellow Freemasons and keen golfers, Malcolm Graham and Alan Jenkins at the Roseberry Grange Community Golf Club in Grange Villa, Chester-le-Street.
They were delighted to present a Community Support Grant of £1,000 to Club Director Bill Greener, who said that, ”the grant was to be used to assist purchasing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), to be situated in the foyer of the club.
Bill stated, “The club had recognised the urgent need for the defibrillator following an incident on the green where a member had taken ill and vital time had been lost while waiting for paramedics to arrive”.
Durham Freemasons have assisted with awareness training and funding of defibrillators which are located not only at Masonic Centers but other institutions within the community within the community easily accessible to the general public”.
