Wonderful news from our auction on Sunday afternoon….

Firstly we had over 450 lots to auction – some donated 100% and some contributing the commission i.e. 20% of sale price.

Secondly we had over 200 people through the door and Peter Chase and his wife collected £117 in entrance fees.

Thirdly the very efficient Tea bar run by Sally Ann Leese and Hazel Owens assisted by Jill Rumble and Dee Davis gave a further £240 from sales and a donated float of coins. The lovely ladies donated all the ingredients and so there were no outgoings.

38% of our lodge members were involved either on the day or by donations. Also assisting were nine wives/partners, a son, a daughter and a father of Lodge members. Many other masons from other lodges were also present and indeed assisted in setting up.

It was a lovely atmosphere and by far the most enjoyable of the three we have now run.

The total amount raised for the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys was £2350.00

A great result!

Well done to all those who were involved in the organisation before, during and after the event – in particular Ray Bezani and Julie Edwards who put many days of work into it. Also thanks to everyone who spent money on the day, made donations or contributed lots.
