Porthcawl Home minibus
Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court (AEPOW), Porthcawl, was given a brand new minibus by its Association of Friends in July.
    AEPOW is a Home for older Freemasons and their female dependants, and is one of 17 care Homes throughout England and Wales managed by the RMBI.
    Peter Frost, Deputy PGM for South Wales, Eastern Division and chairman of the Home’s Association of Friends, presented the Volkswagen LT minibus – which cost more than £28,000 – to RMBI chairman Chris Caine. Also in attendance were Kevin Harris, RMBI executive director of Care Operations, and Home Manager Lorna Hasan.
    The minibus, which can accommodate up to eight passengers, or three wheelchairs, will be used to take residents on days out, shopping trips and hospital and doctor visits.
    RMBI Director of Fundraising & Events, Roger Friend said: “This is a truly magnificent gesture on the part of the Friends, and will make a massive difference to the lives of our residents in Porthcawl. As a charity we are hugely dependent on donations such as these, and are truly grateful”.
