On Thursday 15th December the PGM together with E.Comp James Marsh, 2nd Provincial Grand Principal, and W.Bro Roland Stokes, Provincial Grand Charity Steward, presented £250 to each of eleven local Charities. These Charities have already received donations during 2016 from Lodges and Chapters within the Province and the new donation will make a significant difference to each of them. They were selected by the Provincial Charity Committee and invited to attend a reception at The Westwood Centre. They all sent representatives who each gave a short explanation of the work they carry out.
It is intended to hold another reception in April 2017. If your Lodge or Chapter make donations to any local charity after 1st January 2017 please notify the Provincial Grand Charity Steward at email@example.com with the name plus the amount given and your chosen charity may very well benefit.
