A HEREFORDSHIRE charity can now travel around the county in style after a £500 boost to its transport.

The donation, from Herefordshire Masonic Charity Association, has helped to refurbish Herefordshire Samaritans' vehicle.

Although members from individual Masonic Lodges have supported Herefordshire Samaritans in the past, the latest donation is the first support given by the central Herefordshire Masonic Charity Association.

Reverend David Bowen, grand master for the province of Herefordshire, said this assistance should be maintained in the light of the "invaluable" work undertaken by the Samaritans.
