Last Thursday was the Festival Essentials Event at Pride Park.
The event was aimed at Charity Stewards, Festival Stewards and Worshipful Masters of the Lodge and it was hoped all Lodges in the Province would attend.
The evening started with paying our respect to those who took part in the D Day Landings to mark the 75th Anniversary.
Surhail Alam, of the Masonic Charitable Foundation was in attendance, who gave an informative overview of what the MCF was all about and how it has a huge impact on a lot of people’s lives and ways in which we’re able to raise more money from our donations.
The Provincial Grand Master announced that we have already raised £262,000 towards our target, whilst still donating to local charities.
An enjoyable evening was had by all those in attendance.
