The Plaque presented to Bro. Vasant Maru

Bro. Vasant with the help of Bro. John Woolley obtained a vast amount of donations and raffle ticket sales, primarily for an emergency meeting last year to help raise awareness of Prostate Cancer. When had members of twelve Buckinghamshire and Middlesex Lodges visit us at the end of charity cycle ride. An online auction was also recently held that was put together and administered by W.Bro. Victor Williams.

Nearly £10,000.00 was raised in all, from which a donation of £6000 was made at the February Installation to the Festival 2024. This along with previous our donation, gained the Lodge a framed Certificate celebrating that the Lodge was now a Festival Steward Lodge. This was presented on the night by W.Bro. Michael Pritchard Assistant Provincial Grand Master.

The trio were then joined by all Towan Lodge members at the meeting.
