The Round Table Lodge of Oxfordshire has donated £500 to Oxford's hospital radio station, Radio Cherwell, with a further £500 donation made by the Lodge's Senior Warden, Brother Alireza Vahdani.

Members of the Round Table Lodge of Oxfordshire discussed which charities in the county should benefit from a donation, and they chose to donate £500 to Radio Cherwell, after having heard about the work they do for the patients in Oxford's hospitals.

The Senior Warden of the Round Table Lodge of Oxfordshire, Alireza Vahdani, made contact with his family in Malaysia, who said they were willing to support a cause that the Lodge was supporting, meaning Radio Cherwell benefited from a further £500 donation to the station, making a grand total overall of £1,000.

The donation will help Radio Cherwell progress further as the station enters its fiftieth year of broadcasting, with special events planned for later in the year, which will take place across Oxford's hospitals in Headington, including the John Radcliffe, Churchill and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

Chairman Neil Stockton, pictured receiving the cheque, commented "Donations are the life blood of our charity and the generosity of the Masons will enable us to continue the work of putting smiles on the faces of sick people".

Everybody at Radio Cherwell are grateful for the donation made by the Lodge and Mr Vahdani and his family.
