AFTER funding was cut for a medical referral unit it was feared an annual trip for children would not go ahead.

But thanks to generous folk at the The Rockingham Lodge, West Riding Masonic charities, who donated £1,000, the trip is back on track.

The visit to Lincoln features team building exercises and activities.

Head of of the unit Kath Formby said: “We are so thankful for this money the trip is so important for the children it really does boost their self esteem.

“Now we have this money we feel like we have a fighting chance and we are confident we will be able to afford it.”

Staff will now only have to put around £500 towards the trip.
