The Freemasons Lodge of Friendship in Leeds kindly donated over £600 towards funding specialist equipment to give Steven Mulcahy more independence.
Steven, from Cleckheaton, has Celebral Palsy and can only manage small movements and can’t wash, dress or feed himself without help from his family. However, with a Neater Eater, which is an arm support with a spoon on the end, he can feed himself, increasing his independence.
Regional Fundraising & Awareness Manager at Newlife Caroline Artschan visited the lodge to thank them for their donation and explained the work Newlife does to help provide specialist equipment for children with disabilities or terminal illness across the UK. A raffle also raised an additional £160.
