Penwith Lodge, who have been meeting in Freemasons Hall, Foundry Square since 1973, has a long tradition of supporting community-based charities and clubs. As part of this local outreach and ongoing community support in Hayle they have donated a football kit, which has the Lodge’s emblem printed on the back, to Hayle Predators U7 football team.
The team itself, formed in July 2021 plays in the Kernow Youth Football league and play their matches at Hayle football club on their 4G all-weather pitch.
They were presented with their new kits by the Worshipful Master of Penwith Lodge Tim Miller and Anthony Wilkins, the Lodge Charity Steward at their training ground.
Tim said, “We’re proud to be supporting Hayle Predators for the remainder of the season. As a fraternity, we have an ongoing commitment to helping our local community, and it’s so rewarding to see the joy the kit donation has upon the boys and girls of the club”
Matthew Gendall, who is the teams manager, and a colleague of the Lodge’s Secretary Chris Wadsworth said “ I couldn’t believe it when Chris offered on behalf of the Lodge to provide the kids with a new kit. It’s wonderful to receive this kind of support and I can’t thank them enough. The kids absolutely loved the new kit and has kept them warm the last few months and they look so smart arriving to matches all in the same gear.
