APPEAL

Lodge Secretary Kenneth Maclennan 

  • Dear Sir and Brother, at the regular communication of the Provisional Grand Lodge of Stirlingshire at Lodge Ladywell 1474 on Tuesday 29th January 2019 I announced that it was my intention to have a joint charity with all of the 23 sister lodges to raise money for Strathcarron Hospice. I am sure all lodges have had some association with Strathcarron, whether it be through the lodge or maybe closer to home. I would suggest that your lodge could have a games night, bingo, whisky tasting or whatever you decide. I would like to set a target of £10,000 and would hope that the cheque could be presented in early May of this year. Strathcarron Hospice is in our province and like my mother lodge I am sure many of the sister lodges have already donated to this cause but it would be a great gesture if the 23 lodges could come together to raise a larger sum. We all know the love and care given to everyone in Strathcarron Hospice and I await on your hopefully positive response. Yours fraternally Brother Leonard McComb PM Lodge St John, Slammanan No.484
