MW Bro John Hale -Pro Grand Master, greeting guests before the dinner

A total of 711 people dined, including Mark Master Masons and their partners and guests, who were honoured by the presence of representatives of The Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons in the persons of the Pro Grand Master MWBro John Hale, the Deputy Grand Master RWBro Benjamin Addy, Assistant Grand Master RWBro Michael E Herbert, President of the General Board RWBro Peter H Rollin who is also President of the Mark Benevolent Fund, and the Grand Secretary RWBro John Brackley.

The Festival was to celebrate the culmination of over 7 years of fundraising for the MBF Charity, which was launched by our immediate Past PGM, RWBro Roy K Bradley and continued by the present Provincial Grand Master RWBro George Bonham. The magnificent sum of £561,127 raised by Mark, Royal Ark Mariner lodges and other Orders of both our and other Provinces, was a result which more than doubled the original target.
