Members of a Lynn Freemasons group proved they were good Samaritans when they donated £1,000 to a local charity.

The town’s Philip Broadfoot Lodge donated the money to the King’s Lynn Samaritans recently after choosing it as one of its charities of the year, alongside Meningitis Now.

The Samaritans charity had been chosen by Lynn Riches, wife of the group’s Worshipful Master Ian. She said: “The support offered to people in emotional distress, especially young males, is very important and worthwhile.” Ian and Lynn Riches are pictured donating the £1,000 to Wendy Livesey (right), chair of King’s Lynn Samaritans, who said it would go towards the recruitment and training of two volunteers.
