It’s Back to School for Bedlington Freemasons

08th March 2021

Freemasons from Bedlington Masonic Hall have donated food collected by their members to help Bedlington Station Primary School foodbank. 

The school foodbank is a vital community-based organisation and supports families and individuals in the Bedlington area. Around 40 families a week depend on the foodbank.

Boxes of food, tins and packets were donated by the Bedlington Freemasons who heard about the good work of the foodbank in the town and wanted to help.

Mark Burgess Headteacher was delighted with the food parcels and said “Throughout the current COVID-19 situation, the foodbank remains absolutely and totally committed to relieving food poverty. This donation will go a long way to helping those in need.”

Joe Potts a Freemason from Bedlington said “it’s a great pleasure to be able to help and support the foodbank at Bedlington Station Primary School. He expressed his thanks to the members of the Bedlington Masonic Hall for their generosity and kindness.
