A scheme which helps elderly and disabled people to get around Wisbech has received a major boost from the Freemasons.

The Wisbech Lodge of Freemasons, The Lodge of United Good Fellowship, has donated £1,000 to the Wisbech Community Car Scheme.

The scheme, manned by volunteer drivers, enables disabled, elderly and sometimes lonely people to get to medical appointments, visit relatives and friends and go shopping.

Coordinator Maureen Robertson said: “It is only recently that I have learnt what Freemasons actually do and Wisbech is very fortunate that they are there, ready to assist wherever possible.”
