Elliott Masonic Lodge , based in Mansfield made a donation of £500 to the local Fountaindale School to ensure the students at the school could enjoy a special Christmas
Fountaindale is a school for children and young people who are 3 to 18 years old who have profound and multiple learning needs, complex physical and medical needs and sensory needs.
"At Fountaindale we are passionate that every day matters for children and have our children and families at the heart of everything we do."
The school has sent a letter of thanks to the Provincial Charity Committee, thanking them and Elliott Lodge for their generous donation which enabled all students at the school to receive a present from Santa and a Christmas meal
Santa can be seen above with W Bro John Pawlik, the Chair of the Provincial Charity Committee who presented the cheque to Karen Redgate, Fountaindale School Manager
