During his year as Worshipful Master of Elizabethan Lodge No.7296, W Bro Michael Mallon chose to support the Cardiac Ward at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, and the other day he and some of the members visited the RUH to present a cheque for £863 to the Ward, raised through holding raffles and other events throughout the year.

Dan Wagstaff, Cardiac Ward Manager commented: “Cardiac Ward would like to express their huge thanks to the Elizabethan Lodge for their generous donation.   The money donated will directly help the cardiac ward with its long term plan to provide even better patient-centred care through providing advanced training for the Cardiac team.”

Claudia Hickin, Community Fundraiser at The Forever Friends Appeal said: “It was lovely to meet with members of the Elizabethan Lodge, and especially to see their passion for the cause.  Michael and his Brethren should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved, and I would like to thank them all for their hard work.”

The Forever Friends Appeal say they are incredibly grateful to the Elizabethan Lodge for their generosity and commitment in supporting the Cardiac Ward, and raising funds that will go a long way in transforming patient care on the Ward
