Freemasons support Raquel Paya School

Local Freemasons continue support for Raquel Paya Special Needs School in Denia.

The Immediate Past Master of Logia Deportiva No 83, WBro Glyn Walters, is seen presenting a cheque for 500 euros to Miguel Lillimani, the Director of the Raquel Paya school. This money was raised from a fashion show held earlier in the year and, along with other events, represents total donations of 2,800 euros given this year alone to help the school. This donation will enable them to purchase specially adapted computer software as a teaching aid for speech therapy for use by children with vocal disabilities.

The Lodge has supported the school over the past seven years with the provision of specialist equipment ranging from a wheelchair swing, elevating massage tables, computers, training appliances and a dedicated mood and relaxation room. The School cares for those between 3 and 18 years old who need special care.

Students from the catering department are also pictured with their teachers, Bea Mayor and Niever Ramires, who prepared a lovely selection of sweet and savoury refreshments which were greatly enjoyed by all present.

The Logia Deportiva support for the school was started in 2009 by WBro Dave Oliver and then Worshipful Master WBro Neville Jackson who is pictured with the 2016 Charity Steward and Past Master WBro Darrell Clayton along with newest member of the Lodge Bro Peter Johnson. The party was also attended by our ladies and our Secretary WBro William Lloyd.
