A trio of charities were invited to a coffee morning at the Masonic Royal Assembly Rooms, Great Yarmouth, to receive cheques totalling £1,800.

The money was raised by the members and guests at two Saint Nicholas Lodge functions, the Christmas meeting raising money for children's charities, and ladies night which donates to the lodge master's partner's chosen charity.

Monica Bates of Sunbeams Play was handed £500 for the autistic children's centre, the lodge master's chosen charity for his year in office.

Catherine Ladbrooke of Nelson's Journey, a charity that helps bereaved children, received £500, the proceeds of the Christmas meeting.

And Jeff Wood was handed £800 for the East Coast Hospice, charity of choice for the lodge ladies' night in memory of Coral Bryant, an early passionate supporter of the hospice.
