Oddfellows in the Bedford area have presented a generous donation to Willen Hospice.

Past Provincial Grand Master of the Oddfellows Friendly Society, Beds and Bucks District, Michael McStraw, is pictured (right) presenting a cheque for £2,626.20 to Derek Eastman of Willen Hospice, his chosen charity for 2015, at a recent meeting. The money was raised from various Oddfellows events around the district last year.

Derek gave an interesting insight into the hospice and was very grateful to everyone in the Oddfellows Beds and Bucks for the donation.

The Oddfellows is a friendly society over 200 years old and its members meet for friendship and fun throughout five branches in Beds and Bucks, including one in Bedford. For more information contact Marilyn Saunders, district development officer, on 07933 985085 or marilyn.saunders@oddfellows.co.uk
