A Yorkshire-based designer and manufacturer of bespoke mobility equipment has received £10,000 of funding as part of an area-wide initiative.
Demand, which offers a range of specially and individually designed disability equipment is one firm to have received a pay out from Freemasons.
A total of £84,000 was awarded to various charities and organisations across the Huddersfield area. Mencap was handed the largest donation which amounted to £26,000.
The charity is using the money from the funding to purchase a new minibus to replace its current vehicle.
Meanwhile, six electric beds have been purchased for £25,200 by Kirkwood Hospice intended for patients with severely reduced mobility.
The charities will be presented the grants at the Freemasons’ annual meeting in Harrogate next month.
Provincial grand master, David Pratt, told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner in a report: “We continue to provide an example of Freemasonry being at the very heart of the communities that we live and work in and I am always both amazed and grateful for the extreme generosity shown by our members in helping ensure that we can do this.”
