Charity News Letter No. 11

February 2016

Dear Brethren

At our December meeting we donated £1350.00 to local Charities and a further £1500.00 to the RMTGB. For such a small Lodge that is really brilliant, thank you all for your support.

The next piece of news is that we now only need £1411.58 to reach our Gold certificate which a couple of years back we were only looking to obtain our Silver!

The Festival closes on the 22nd October 2016 and a special Celebration Event is being held to mark the end of Festival at Bournemouth International Centre on Saturday, 22nd October to which all Brethren and their Wives/Partners are invited.   Details of the event and how to  book will be published within the next two weeks and reservations will be made on a first come-first served basis given that the numbers are limited to 1000.

We have two social fund nights at Windsor Road Masonic Centre. The first is a Quiz Night with a Fish and Chip Supper on the 19th March with the proceeds going to the RMTGB. The next is a Skittles Match between our Lodge and St Peters Lodge, the date is still to be finalised but we hope to hold it on the 23rd April 2016 – more details to follow.

Any Brother who wishes to carry on saving for the next charity can do so through the Grand Charity Relief Chest, please let me know and I will give you the Relief Chest form.

Once again may I thank you all for your support to the RMTGB over the past years.
