At the special meeting of the Masonic Benevolent Fund Court of Governors in Bridgend Temple on July 11th, the Provincial Grand Master of the Province of South Wales, Gareth Jones, was pleased to present a cheque for £2500 to Melanie and Mike Davies, toward their commendable work in seeking to establish a world class centre for recovery and rehabilitation for all that need it, based at the Morriston Hospital site outside Swansea. The cheque brings the total donated by Freemasonry to this worthy cause, thus far, to £7,000, from Provincial resources and individual Lodge fund raising. All monies donated to this, and many other deserving charities, both national and local comes entirely from Freemasons themselves. Melanie gave those present a well delivered and passionate insight into how she became injured herself, and then inspired to dedicate herself to the establishing of the TREAT Trust centre, in the positive and amusing way she makes her own. The fund raising goes on, Melanie happy to attend wheelchair accessible locations to make a presentation in a quite remarkable fashion, and present her equally remarkable book, all proceeds from sales used to benefit the TREAT cause, and give a real insight into her hopes and plans. Her aim of the centre dedicated to recovery and rehabilitation is steadily gaining ground, supported not only by Freemasons, but leading figures such as Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Michael Sheen, Paul Potts, and Max Boyce to name but a few.
