A letter of appreciation has been received and is copied below:
To whom it may concern,
My name is Jake Boyd and I am writing to you on behalf of CFYDC (CHANCE).
Words can not describe the appreciation and gratitude that we have for your
incredible donation to the charity. We have been engaging with young people
through sports and other projects locally since 2002. The organisation has been
in desperate need for the Multi-Use Games Area to be redeveloped, which you
have contributed enormously towards. The redevelopment will benefit 1000’s of
children for the foreseeable future, through football, rugby, boxing, holiday camps
and disability groups.
I would like to thank all who took part in helping us receive this funding, including
Michael Rose and Raymond Diamond. Who I would like to give a special
mention, they took their time to make this happen and without their support it
would have been impossible.
We will do our best to make sure that you all receive the credit and press that you
deserve, you have been fantastic with us. You are a kind group of people and we
want people to know that.
Again, thank you to everyone for your efforts. We will keep you all posted
throughout the redevelopment.

With the £2,200 donation from the Masonic Province of Yorkshire, West Riding, we were able to purchase a new Oska Series 5 V4L mattress.
These mattresses are known as lateral tilt pressure care mattress and offer our patients ultimate comfort and lateral tilt therapy. giving an alternating air and foam combination which provides exceptional comfort and support, they are suitable as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.
The mattress can be switched from alternating therapy to lateral rotation therapy which gently tilts the patient from side to side every 10 minutes, 5 minutes on either side, to alternate the pressure. This makes them ideal for palliative care.
Thank you again for your donation, when we needed it the most.
With love from the team at Wheatfields Hospice.
An important message for all members of West Riding Masonic Charities Limited.
You will have read, in the New Year edition of White Rose Masonic News, that the main fund-raiser for the Association of Friends of Connaught Court, the annual Summer fair, was unfortunately cancelled last year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
West Riding Masonic Charities Ltd, on your behalf, made a donation of £5,000 to the Association to assist in the fantastic work they do for the residents of the RMBI Home, Fulford, York.
The Chair of the Association, Mark Payne, sent the below letter to WRMCL.
THE ASSOCIATION OF FRIENDS OF CONNAUGHT COURT
On behalf of myself the Association of Friends of Connaught Court and the residents I am writing to thank yourself and the West Riding Masonic Charities Board for your kind donation of £5000.
I was invited to address the AGM of the Board a number of years ago and know the tremendous support you have given to Connaught Court over the years. In these most difficult times the money will ensure that we can continue to improve life in the home for our residents
The Association of Friends of Connaught Court, established in 1973, is a registered charity entirely independent of the RMBI and consists of Freemasons from the Provinces of Yorkshire West Riding, Yorkshire North and East Ridings and Lincolnshire, together with representatives from Castlegate Ladies.
If you wish to support the Association individually, you may do so by becoming a Life Member, paying a one-off fee (currently a minimum of £10). Each Masonic Hall has an Ambassador for the Association, who will be only too pleased to help with your application.
