Over £4000 Toys donated

by Peter Wells

In a heart warming gesture of generosity, Berkshire Freemasons have made a substantial contribution to the Toys for Disadvantaged Children initiative in Reading, donating over £4000 worth of new toys. The presentation ceremony, led by W Bro Mark Heppelthwaite, Deputy Provincial Grand Master for Berkshire, marked a significant moment of community support and compassion.

The event was captured in a poignant photograph featuring W Bro Mickey Labana, the Provincial Grand Charity Steward, alongside the Deputy Provincial Grand Master who expressed his pride in being part of such a meaningful endeavour, emphasising that the success of this initiative was made possible by the unwavering support of Berkshire Freemasons.

The Deputy Provincial Grand Master commented, “I am immensely proud to be present at this handover. The joy these toys will bring to disadvantaged children in our community is immeasurable. This act of kindness reflects the core values of Berkshire Freemasons, and we are grateful for the immense support that has made this contribution possible.”

Diane Stone, wife of the late W Bro Roy Ernest Stone who was one of the instigators behind the initiative attended in his honour. Her presence added a profound layer of significance to the occasion, symbolizing the continued legacy of kindness initiated by W Bro Roy Ernest Stone, who is dearly missed by all.

The donation serves as a reminder of the enduring commitment of Berkshire Freemasons to making a positive difference in the lives of those less fortunate. As the holiday season approaches, the gift of these toys will undoubtedly bring joy and smiles to the faces of of children who without this support would receive no presents on Christmas day.

The handover ceremony concluded with heartfelt thanks extended to all those Berkshire Masons who have kindly assisted and donated to the success of the toy collection.
