Blandford Freemasons supporting NOCS


Thanks to donations from the annual lodge of instruction dinner of The Lodge of Honour and Friendship, Blandford-based charity ‘New Opportunities for Community and Support’ (NOCS) has purchased new furniture and refurbished it premises.
NOCS Charity provides support, development opportunities and fun for people with high levels of social anxiety and difficulties with social interaction, particularly due to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), such as Asperger’s, or mental health challenges.
Blandford councillor and the charity’s founder of NOCS Nocturin Lacey-Clarke said, ‘This donation was a wonderful extra for our small charity. It means we are able to ensure that maximum funding goes on our day-to-day activities.’
Andrew Ward, Master of The Lodge of Honour and Friendship said ‘This is what Freemasonry really is all about, the difference that we can make to small local charities, with focussed goals, is amazing. The work that they do at NOCS is great and we’re really happy to be able support’.
