Each year East Ribble District Freemasons hold a Christmas Carol Service at Holy Trinity Church in Oswaldtwistle. This is usually a well attended and enjoyable event.
Sadly, due to the pandemic this year the event cannot be held.
Holy Trinity Church is a true community Church and uses the collection money from the Carol Service to help the community of Oswaldtwistle with food and basic supplies for those in need over the Christmas period.
The District are happy to have donated £150 towards the Church in lieu of the collection so it can continue its much needed work. Rev. Anthony Roberts hopes to use the funds this year to start a foodbank and budget advice centre within the Church when the current lockdown restrictions are lifted.
