JOINT LILFORD AND FERRERS LODGES OF MMM AND RAM - 471 & 1341 CHARITY LUNCHEON IN SUPPORT OF THE MARK BENEVOLENT FUND

On Sunday 28thApril 2019 the Lilford Lodges (471) and Ferrers Lodges (1341) of MMM and Royal Ark Mariners held a joint Charity Luncheon at the Rushden Masonic Centre in support of the Mark Benevolent Fund (MBF). The event was organised by WBro Jeff Chambers (Charity Steward – Lilford Mark & RAM Lodges) and WBro Ian Michel (Charity Steward – Ferrers Mark Lodge).

A total of 73 guests attended and a superb lunch was provided by “Festive Delights” – the Rushden Centre’s in-house caterers.

After lunch an enlightening talk about the work of the MBF was given by WBro Darren Coleman (Charities Manger- MBF) and this was followed by a very moving presentation from Alun Jones on behalf of the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (a very worthy charity supported by the Lilford Lodges).

Mrs Tricia Pearson (wife of the late WBro Harry Pearson (formerly Worshipful Master of the Lilford Lodge of MMM and Past Worshipful Commander of the Lilford Lodge of RAM), ably assisted by our Provincial Grand Master, then presented a beautiful handmade child’s quilt cover to EACH on behalf of the Raunds Ladies Stitchers Group.

                                                                             

A superb and highly amusing musical interlude was provided by Bro Ray Beck (Danetre Lodge 8594) – it proved to be a brilliant post-prandial accompaniment.

A raffle was followed by a very successful auction of kindly donated items conducted by Bro David Bennett (Ferrers Lodge of MMM 1341).

The event proved to be a hugely enjoyable team effort and raised a magnificent £1009 for the MBF. A cheque was subsequently presented to WBro Darren Coleman (Charities Manager, Mark Benevolent Find) at Rushden on behalf of all the four Lodges.

                                                                              

The picture above shows the cheque being presented to WBro Darren Coleman by WBro Mick Warren (WM Lilford Lodge of MMM) and WBr Bob Dennis (WM Ferrers Lodge of MMM).
