Donation to the Surrey Craft 2019 Festival in aid of the R.M.B.I. acknowledged by the Provincial Grand Master R.W. Bro. Eric Stuart-Bamford

At our AMD Annual Meeting of the District at Croydon in December I presented the Surrey Craft Deputy Provincial Grand Master, V. W. Bro. Derek Barr, with a cheque for £1,200.00 towards the Craft 2019 Festival which is in aid of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. This was gratefully received by V. W. Bro. Derek who acknowledged our generosity at the time but now the receipt of our donation has been further acknowledged by the Craft Provincial Grand Master, R. W. Bro. Eric Stuart-Bamford.

On Friday the 12th February during the annual ‘Heads of Orders Meeting’ which is chaired by the Craft Provincial Grand Master R. W. Bro. Eric concluded the Meeting with strong words of thanks for our donation and presented me with a Certificate of appreciation acknowledging our kindness. As it was the generosity of all the Members, particularly those who attend the Annual Meeting and the Annual Hog Roast, that enabled the District to make this donation I want to share the Certificate with you and it is therefore reproduced herewith together with a photograph of the presentation (above).

A separate cheque from Surrey Hills Council for £250.00 was also presented at the Annual Meeting and the Provincial Grand Master was also pleased to acknowledge this additional donation with a Certificate for that Council which I intend to present to them on my next Official Visit.

Well done all and thank you for your generous contributions to our District Charity Fund.
