Athelstan Lodge No 1333 received a request from Warton and Austrey Scout Group for help in raising £500.00 to enable them to purchase 4-man tents, this to enable them to go camping during the Easter holidays.
As a Lodge, we are committed to try and help local charities and organisations. To this end our Worshipful Master, W Brother Gerard Somers, arranged for the whole amount to be donated to them.
The attached photograph shows our W Master presenting the cheque to two of the Scout Leaders.
To quote the recipients of the cheque, “This will enable our group to camp over the Easter weekend and whenever in the future due the money being available so quickly, we would have needed over 2 years of events to raise this money. Many thanks”.
