IT'S not all about ‘secrets’ and ‘funny handshakes’ with Freemasonry; members of the St David's Freemasons recently showed their commitment to fundraising, donating more than £1,100 to help a little girl from Johnston.

Four-year-old Eliza Scriven suffers with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy; her family and friends are in the process of trying to raise £60,000 to have surgery in Bristol called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which will take away her spasticity (stiffness) permanently.

Members of St David's Freemasons recently presented Eliza’s family with a cheque for £1,145, raised from a Welsh charity night of hymns and arias, with cawl, bara brith and Welshcakes.

A fundraising campaign has been set up to help Eliza, with more than £10,000 raised to date.

Plenty of fundraising events have been taking place to raise funds for Eliza.

Valero apprentices studying at Pembrokeshire College recently took part in a sponsored head-shave for the fund, raising £1,900.

A charity rugby match took place last month, raising more than £5,000.

A charity football match is also planned for next month, June 9, at Milford United Football Club.
