FREEMASONS in Bridgwater gave a boost to diabetic children and their families in the South-West with a £3,000 donation.
Richard Winder, from the Admiral Blake Masonic Lodge, presented a cheque for £2,000 to the local diabetic charity the Josh Evans Trust Fund.
Fred Body, representing the Province Freemasons, also presented a cheque for £1,000.
The trust was set up by the family and friends of Josh Evans, a diabetic who played for North Petherton Rugby Club, died aged 21 in road accident when his blood sugars got too low.
The trust raises money to support the NHS infrastructure by proving additional support, literature and knowledge for diabetic children and their families in the local region.
