The brethren of Fort William’s Lodge 43 dug deep into their own pockets when they heard that the Belford Hospital was in need of a specialist cardiac monitor which can be worn by patients in their own home and raised enough money for its purchase.
In the course of lockdown the Lodge has also carried out other good works in supplying £500 worth of toiletries to NHS staff in the Belford, along with iPads to Invernevis House and Moss Park Care Homes, allowing residents to stay in touch with friends and family. They have also helped local businesses in premises owned by the Lodge to stay open.
Lodge 43 Warden Graham Kelly met with Health Support Worker Wendy MacDonald and Chief Cardiac Physiologist Kathy Tighe outside the hospital to hear how useful the new equipment has been.
