Freemasons on the Central Coast, along with the Lodges of District 21, have donated $8,000 to support Camp Breakaway, a purpose built respite care facility for children and adults with disabilities.

Camp Breakaway, located in San Remo, was established in 1982 and specialises in providing support, accommodation and planned programs for patients, carers, parents, and families.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak in March, Camp Breakaway was forced to close its doors to the community, which impacted donor support and normal income streams.

The Central Coast Freemasons donation will go together with other donations of carpet, beds, and paint, to help support the upkeep, renovations, refurbishment, painting, and landscaping of the facility.

Camp Breakaway’s Community Engagement Officer, Sara Evans, thanked the Freemasons for the generous donation.

To help raise further funds for the facility, the public can hire out the site for both indoor and outdoor events, with function rooms, catering options and cabin style accommodation available.
