Forest of Arden Contributes to Cancer Care

Ward 19 PresentationOn Wednesday 12th February 2020, our Worshipful Master Bob Ayling, accompanied by Charity Steward Ron Mackrell, visited Ward 19 of Heartlands Hospital to present a cheque for £330 raised at our Friends and Families Supper the previous month.

Ward 19 has special meaning for Ron, as he has received treatment there for several years.  When asked which charity he would like to raise funds for, Ron immediately asked for Ward 19.  This donation will specifically be allocated to enable people who cant get to the hospital to recieve chemotherapy at home.

Anabelle Davies of the Ward 19 Charity said "It was great to meet you and learn about your Masonic Lodge.  Thank you for your kind donation which is gratefully receieved."

Friends and Families Evening

Once a year, it has become traditional at our January meeting, to host a "White Table" event, to which our friends and family members are invited, as well as those who may be interested in joining the Lodge.

On Wednesday 15th January 2020, such an evening was held, and proved to be a great success. Following a brief Lodge meeting during which W.Bro Iain Denton was elected to serve as Worshipful Master for the next year, our guests were invited into the Lodge Room, and offered a brief presentation on Freemasonry, The Lodge room and its symbolism, and our regalia by W.Bro Stuart Jenkins. The Lodge members sang the Closing Ode and processed out, to the acclaim of our guests.

There followed a sumptious dinner prepared by our Caterer Rupert Davies and his team, at which 40 members and guests enjoyed a most convivial evening. 

Our Charity Steward, Ron Mackrell, made an imassioned appeal on behalf of Ward 19 at Heartlands Hospital, a cause close to his own heart, and we raised the sum of £330.00 on their behalf.

Following the Festive Board, a good number of us repaired to the Ale Rooms nearby, and the merriment continued!
