#WorldSightDay

Today is #WorldSightDay, so we're resharing this story from earlier in the year when our Masonic Charitable Foundation awarded sight loss and disability charity SeeAbility an incredible £44,608 towards transforming eye care for children. SeeAbility's groundbreaking research has found that children with learning disabilities are 28 times more likely to have a serious sight problem, yet are also less likely to have access to regular eye care. Their tireless campaigning aims to transform how children with disabilities access and receive eye care by ensuring that specialist sight tests become standard practice in special schools. Paula Spinks-Chamberlain from SeeAbility said: “We are delighted to receive this grant from the MCF that will help us deliver more specialist sight tests in more special schools around the country.” Another important example of the difference that masonic charitable support can make.

A quick reminder that the old £1 coin will go out of circulation on October 16th but the 2021 festival will still be happy to receive any you find after this date. ... See MoreSee Less

Last night at their Installation meeting, Lodge of Concord became the fifth Lodge out of six at Queen Street East, Sunderland, to surpass 66% of their Festival target.
In the Lodge room, the newly installed master, WBro. William Telfer, handed over donations totalling £1100 to the APGM WBro John David Watts, who was representing the Provincial Grand Master. At the festive board WBro Watts spoke of how the Immediate Past Master, Gil Crossley Jnr, along with his wife Nicky had raised over £1400 in sponsorship by running the Great North Run. The sponsorship money together with the donation given in the Lodge Room meant that the Lodge had now qualified to receive the Silver Festival Award. WBro. Watts then asked the Lodge Charity Stewart, WBro David Dorward to come forward to accept his silver lapel badge

The gold award finally arrives at St Oswald lodge. Back in May John Thompson made the trip to Darlington to acknowledge the lodge reaching target but was left stranded 3 miles from the lodge waiting for the AA. But tonight WM Mark Teasdale gratefully received the award certificate and Charity steward Duncan Maw the Gold Pin. John commented on Duncan’s inspirational fundraising efforts which added £12,500 to the lodge total from the GNR. This lodge just keeps on giving well done St Oswald.

Quest for Silver and Eric does a runner!

With over 50% of their members now continuously giving, Quest Lodge in Seaham achieved their Silver Award on Tuesday. Hall Ambassador Malcolm Wilkinson presented the pin badge in open lodge. Quest's Charity Steward, Eric Brodie, shown receiving the award, had incidentally, just completed the Great North Run as part of the Durham team, raising over £1000 towards the lodges total and more remarkably he had run a personal best by finishing 37,579th......just behind Mo!

Does anyone fancy this as a 2018 event, if we have enough interest we can organise some places. It's great team building and lots of fun. It will be October 2018
