Coquet schools receive funds from Freemasons
Three schools in the Coquet Valley have received funds from Northumberland Freemasons in Alnwick.
Every year, Coquetdale Masonic Lodge holds a Christmas social evening and proceeds from its fund-raising raffle go to good causes.
The raffle raised £153 on the night and the Lodge then made this up to a total of £300.
Harbottle Church of England First School, Rothbury First School and Thropton Village First School all received £100.
Lodge secretary Robin Murray said: “We are committed to raising funds to help local charities and organisations provide a service for those in our community. What better way to help than to look at our young people and help them with equipment and activities at their schools.”

In addition, a lodge member who now lives in Leicestershire, heard of the donations and sent a cheque for £100. As he was a former pupil at Harbottle his donation was also sent there.
