Masons put fans in VIP box

From: Croydon Guardian, UK - 12 Mar 2003

Freemasons from the Old Palace Masonic Lodge in Croydon helped six disabled Crystal Palace fans watch their team in action with a donation of £750 last month.

The six youngsters from the Bromley Deaf Society watched the match against Sheffield Wednesday on February 22 from a VIP box.

The money went to the "Kids in the box" appeal, run by local Eagles enthusiast Ray Bateup, through his Crystal Palace Fast Information and Results email bulletin service.

In January the Croydon Guardian donated £500 prize-money to the appeal, when our unique kick-by-kick online commentary won a BT award for technical innovation.
