Members of Exmouth’s three Masonic Lodges have joined forces to raise £3,000 for the town’s hospital.

The donation was raised through the lodge’s ‘hospital box’ which collected loose change from members and guests over the course of five years.

The money is in addition to the Freemasons’ usual fundraising for charities and will be used to help the hospital purchase a mobile patient hoist.

Worshipful masters Tom Devin, of the Per Mare Per Terram Lodge, Peter O’ Connor, of Rolle Lodge, and Ian Matthews presented the cheque to Diane Robson, matron of Exmouth Hospital.

The masters said they were pleased to donate money to help the nurses lift patients in a safe manner and reduce injury to themselves or the user.

Mrs Robson said the hospital was very grateful for the continued support of the Masons of both Exmouth and Devonshire.
