Staff in the Intensive care unit at William Harvey Hospital received a treat for the Easter Weekend, Charlie Miller, delivered over £350 worth of Easter Eggs on behalf of East Kent Freemasons.
Although Charlie is not yet a Freemason, he applied to join and was due to become a member of Snargate Lodge in May this year, due to the corona virus that’s been delayed, he was discussing the plight of a intensive care nurse he new with a member of the Lodge in Dover, suggesting he was going to donate some money to by treats for the staff at the hospital, within a day members of Snargate lodge and Military Jubilee Chapter decided to back him with donations, he also gained the backing of Tesco’s in Folkestone and Ashford.
Charlie, who’s occupation is an HGV driver for a recycling company, lives in Peen Nr Folkestone.
He said, “my friends’ wife is an intensive care nurse at Ashford, and she is working to and demanding schedule, so it seemed appropriate that a little something may bring some lite relief and I thought of Easter eggs. I decided he wanted to become a Freemason because I knew someone who was a member and enjoy it, I wanted to be involved in the charity side as well as the fun and friendship of the organisation”.
No doubt Charlie will make a great Freemason, like many Individuals’ from all over Kent doing something to help during the Coronavirus. Great oaks from little acorns grow.
