FREEMASONS have given £1,000 towards improving a residential cottage for Huddersfield area Guides.
The Albert Edward Lodge, based at Greenhead Masonic Hall near Huddersfield town centre gave the money to the Huddersfield Areal Guides cottage at Holme.
The money from the West Yorkshire Provincial Grand Master’s Fund will be spent on new bunk beds and chairs.
It will also go towards helping the building meet fire and safety regulations.
