THOUSANDS of pounds have been raised to benefit children with additional needs.

Masons, from Coleshill Lodge in Flint recently held a charity 'night at the races' and rased over £2,000.

The money raised will be shared between the Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) the soldiers' charity and Ysgol Pen Coch in Flint.

Ysgol Pen Coch is a school for children with additional needs and the money donated will be used to help fund the building of a new sensory room for the children.

Each year, Flint Masons raise money for local charities and good causes.

Anyone who knows of a charity that will benefit from the club's help or anyone wishing to help in the fundraising can contact William Johnson, Coleshill Lodge charity representative on 07733263780.
