Freemasons from Cornish lodges have hit a major milestone in their fundraising for Cornwall Air Ambulance, having raised enough to fund over 250 hours of fuel for the lifesaving charity.

The latest donation – this year totalling £4k – means The Freemasons of Cornwall have now raised over £50k for the Cornish rescue charity since 2007.

The annual donation is made by The Freemason’s Grand Charity, which supports air ambulance services across the UK and has donated more than £1.5 million to 22 rescue services since 2007.

Cornwall Air Ambulance flies around 800 rescue missions every year and receives no government funding, so relies on public donations to stay in the air.
