Masonic golfers tee up cheque to buy wheelchair


Staff reporter (Chester First)

BACK in 1971 some golf-loving Freemasons in South Cheshire formed a golf society so they could both enjoy each other’s company and play the sport.

In 1972 businessman Harry Morgan heard of efforts by the ‘Peter Allis Wheelchair Crusade’ to buy powered-wheelchairs for local disabled children.

The Masonic members agreed to ally themselves with these efforts and have continued to do so until the present day.

Every year since then the society has managed to purchase at least one chair for a local boy or girl, all carried out under the guidance of the Peter Allis Crusade.

Members of Caerlleon Lodge in Chester, hearing of the efforts, have donated, for the second time, a cheque for £3,800 which will purchase one chair.
