|Amherst Mark Lodge present a cheque for £2,723 to the 20:20 Festival
The Worshipful Master and brethren of the Amherst Mark Lodge 266 were delighted to welcome the Provincial Grand Charity Steward W. Bro Ian Gallehawk (photo above) to their regular meeting held at the Sandgate Masonic hall on the 22nd January 2015.
During the evening W.Bro Ian was treated to the ceremony of Advancement for Bro Frank Witts which was carried out in an excellent manor by the Worshipful Master, W.Bro John Meyer and ably assisted by the officers of his lodge.
Following the ceremony of Advancement the lodge charity steward Bro Mick Lay then presented a cheque for £2,723 to W.Bro Ian on behalf of the Worshipful Master and the brethren of the Amherst Lodge in support of the 20:20 festival. This money was donated over several years by the brethren of the lodge and banked as money to be used for charity.
W.Bro Ian then thanked the lodge on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master and the festival fund raising committee for its magnificent donation in support of the 20:20 festival. He then briefly explained to the brethren some of the many worthy charities the MBF endorse and how our 20:20 festival supports it.
Finally W.Bro Ian thanked the brethren of the lodge again for their efforts to date and for their continued support of the festival.
