East Lancashire Masonic Charity made a donation of £2650 to the Friends of Darwen Cemetery recently to fund a Muck Truck for the volunteers to use in the restoration of Darwen Cemetery.
Terry Woods, volunteer from the East Ribble District Freemasons said, “It gives use great pleasure in presenting the cheque to the Friends of Darwen Cemetery.
We offered to do some volunteering work around and supporting the friends with some removal of rhododendrons while during the visit.” East Lancashire Mason, David Lightbown, District Chairman who attended the presentation and helped the cemetery volunteers said, “It’s clear that you all put much effort and work in, you should be very proud of yourselves.
We will certainly spread the word about your work and hopefully get another work party together in the near future.”
John East, Chair of the Friends said, “We are so grateful for the donation and the Muck Truck will certainly make things a lot easy for the work parties.”
