On Sunday 24th April, 47 Brethren, wives, partners and friends attended the Masonic Hub at Clevedon Masonic Hall to enjoy a superb lunch served by Zena & Neil and all of the staff.
At these events, we do not usually have a raffle but Neil wished to raise some money on this occasion for a local charity, Weston super Mare Rheumatoid Group and for PMR/GCA which is Polymyalgea Rheumatica Charity.
Ray Beckingham explained the objectives of both Charities whereupon the superb sum of £350 was raised from the raffle and a donation from Zena and Neil, this being part of the cost of the meal together with another donation from the Masonic Hall.
The Charities were very pleased with their respective donations, with the Weston Branch money going towards purchasing floats for use in the Hydro Pool. The PMR money will help with support for people with P.M.R.
Thanks to everyone for raffle prizes, and for raising a superb sum.
