The officers and brethren of Peace Lodge No 2269 were asked by honorary member Stephen Ward and his wife Barbara to support The Legacy Rainbow House in Mawdsley. The trust is a national charity working with children and young adults with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs.
At the 100 years birthday party of Sid Whalley in January, a raffle raised a superb £640 which was split equally between West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity and Legacy Rainbow House.
Gary Smith the charity steward from Peace Lodge and Ian Moss were invited to attend Legacy Rainbow House to officially present the cheque and see for themselves how the trust helps young people.
They were treated to a tour of the facilities with the founder of The Legacy Rainbow House, Joanne Mawdsley, and met some of the staff and people they help, even joining in with some of the conductive therapy lessons which were a real eye opener.
The trust is in the process of building a state of the art facility at their base in Mawdsley, Ormskirk where education can be provided on site and is due to be opened by HRH The Princess Royal later this year.
The young people, staff and assistants at the facility were very happy to receive their visitors and their contribution and vowed to continue their excellent work.
