THE HAMPSHIRE and Isle of Wight Freemasonry group has donated £4,000 to a local charity. The group has decided to award the bank-boosting funds to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and it will help the air ambulance carry out life-saving emergencies.

Assistant provincial grandmaster Noel Voice said: “Hampshire and Isle of Wight Freemasons are especially happy to support organisations that help to save lives and provide support to people in emergency situations.”
