A masonic society held raffles and fundraising events to raise £1,750 to East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
St Andrew Whittlesey Masonic Benevolent Association presented a cheque to the hospice, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire.
Richard Phillips, treasurer for St Andrew Whittlesey Masonic Benevolent Association, said: “Nationally, freemasons make donations to both masonic and non-masonic charities, in 2014 alone the amount given was over six million pounds.
“On a local level we organise events during the year and distribute the money raised to regional and local good causes.
“This year our Worshipful Master, Ian Fawcett, has chosen to support EACH in recognition of the charity’s exceptional work and we are proud to be able to present you with a cheque for £1,750 to support their endeavours.”
Beccy Gillings, EACH Cambridgeshire fundraiser, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Whittlesey Masonic Association for their fundraising efforts and for the impressive amount they have raised for EACH.”
