Philip Bullock, the head of Wiltshire Freemasons, said: “I am delighted that we are able to sponsor this concert, which will raise funds to buy more bears for TLC.
“The evening’s entertainment is being supported by Wiltshire Freemasons, who in 2016 gave £3,000 to enable the organisers to fulfil its obligation to Salisbury and Swindon hospitals.”
