THE annual pantomime presented at Brookfield School and Specialist College on Grandstand Road, Hereford, has received the support of Herefordshire Freemasons with a donation of over £700.
The school, which provides specialist educational needs for over 60 Herefordshire six to 16-year-olds, has received such support on three occasions, much to the approval and wishes of Rev David Bowen, provincial grand master for Herefordshire Masons.
This year’s pantomime Treasure Island was organised through the national charity Happy Days by Anna Collum a senior member of the teaching staff at the school. The production was attended by the visiting Freemasons, David Bowen, Allan Lloyd, and provincial grand charity steward David Knowles.
David Bowen was delighted to be able to visit the school, and remarked how well the pupils responded to the professionally presented pantomime performed by the visiting theatre company Magic of Theatre. He said that the performance truly proved magical for the pupils who obviously greatly enjoyed the production, and promised that he and his fellow Freemasons would continue to fully support such local charities. The Freemasons Grand Charity supported this charity with a donation of £20,000 in 2011.
