Budleigh Salterton freemasons have donated £300 to a specialist charity for the visually impaired.
Just before Christmas, Colin Bytheway and Tom Pearman, of the Lodge of Harmony in Budleigh, visited WESC Foundation.
They presented a cheque for £300 on behalf of their Lodge to support their work with young people with vision impairment.
During the visit, they met specialists from the therapy and mobility team who showed how their support will help them continue to transform the lives of the children and young adults they support.
They also watched from afar as the WESC Foundation community came together for an end of term celebration.
When receiving the cheque Laurence Blyth said: "Thank you to all the Brethren of the Lodge for supporting our charity’s work with children and young people from across the UK, including many who live here in Devon."
Presentations of £300 were also made by the Lodge of Harmony to both The Budleigh Salterton and District Hospiscare and Westbank Community Health and Care.
