Ripon Freemasons have donated £1500 to Scuba Diving for All – nine years after they first helped the charity set up.

Worshipful Master of the Ripon and De Grey Lodge David Broadley presented a cheque to Scuba volunteers Yvonne and David Covell, along with the lodge’s charity steward Mike Pallott.

The Ripon Freemasons secured a £1500 grant for the group from the Provinicial Grand Master’s fund after the group wrote asking for helping replacing much-needed equipment.

“We sponsored Scuba Diving for All when they first started. They do a really great job, and we were delighted to help,” said Mr Pallett.
