John Hubble, of Aylesbury, along with his wife, Doreen, was recently very pleased to present a cheque for £2,500 to Daniel Howard OBE, Chief Operating Officer of Medical Detection Dogs (MDD).
John has just completed his year as Master of De Bohun Lodge, No. 8175, which meets at the Aylesbury Masonic Centre, and was delighted to help MDD with this donation from money raised during his tenure.
Medical Detection Dogs (based in Great Horwood, Bucks) trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease. The charity is at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and helping people with life-threatening diseases.
Daniel said: "We at Medical Detection Dogs are extremely grateful to John and the members of De Bohun Lodge for this most generous donation. The dogs, like Kiwi and Bumper, do remarkable work and this money will go a long way to helping us with our important fight against cancer and disease."
John added: "These dogs are amazing and are helping with the detection and diagnosis of cancers and other diseases by changes in the odour obtained from a person's breath, urine or swabs."
