Else Lodge donation to Cardiac Unit
The Immediate Past Master of the Else Lodge of Mark Master Masons, W. Bro. Michael Fazackerley’s chosen charity during his recent year as Master was The Bristol Heart Institute Cardiac Unit.
Mike is also Chairman this current year of the Weston Group of Friends, (GOF, a non-Masonic Organisation). Mike’s nominated charity from his GOF members was also happily presented to the Bristol Cardiac Unit.
I asked Mike why the Cardiac Unit was the beneficiary of both his chosen Charites?
He explained; “There are several members of Else who are also members of GOF so I thought it would be a good idea to make a dual donation at the same time.
My reasons for this? I have personally received treatment from them on more than one occasion and its not an exaggeration to say they have saved my life.
In addition members of Else and GOF have also received treatment at Bristol, it is the centre of excellence for the south west”.
The two cheques totalling £1,900 were presented by W. Bro. Mike on Monday 2nd February 2015, to Matron Jenny Anstey, who is in charge of the two units at Bristol. Mike Fazackerley was talking to Pat Morrisey.
