CANCER charity volunteers have received an enormous helping hand from generous freemasons.

Barbara Lord and Maureen Sampson accepted £25,000 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation on behalf of Aurora Wellbeing, at a ceremony in Leeds this week.

They received the cheque from David Pratt, Provincial Grand Master for the Masonic Province of Yorkshire, West Riding.

Aurora won a public vote, earning a share of £3 million handed out by the MCF nationwide.

Every month, Aurora offers around 40 cancer patients and carers free hair care, manicures, pedicures, facial treatments, massages and more.
