Right Worshipful Brother Trevor Arbuckle of Seaview Freemasons Lodge is photographed presenting a cheque for $1000 to Brother Olie Picket of the Wheelchairs for Kids In Need organisation.
Brother Olie has been involved in the manufacture of wheelchairs for kids since 1998. This WA Charity runs out of a factory in Gnangara and presently has up to 100 retirees volunteering their time in the construction of the wheelchairs. The chairs are then sent to impoverished and disabled children in under sourced countries. Over the last fourteen years the charity has donated over 25,000 wheelchairs to children.
Freemasons Lodges practise charity to others. In regard to Wheelchairs for Kids, Seaview Freemasons Lodge (www.seaviewfreemasonslodge.org) has now donated $4000 in total to this worthy cause. To date, a total $17300 has been donated to various charities in WA. The source of this money is derived from donations by individual Freemasons, sausage sizzles raffles and the additional support from the Grand Lodge of Western Australia.
