TWO local causes have benefited from generous donations from the Durnovarian Lodge 8726.

The Lodge, which was supported by the Lodge of Faith and Unanimity 417, raised £300 through a fundraising raffle at its annual Christmas dinner.

The Worshipful Master of the Durnovarian Lodge Bill Lowes and Lodge members Tony Stone and Terry Clarke handed over cheques of £150 each to Lt/Col Geoff Nicholls from The Rifles Care for Casualties charity and director of fundraising at the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust Caroline Nickinson, above.

The presentation was held at the Keep Military Museum in the county town.
