On Sunday 21st February 2016, sixty five members and guests of The United Service Lodge No 3124 attended a lunch at the United Masonic Club, Sheerness.
During the lunch a cheque for £1,250 was presented to Liz Haggart, Chief Officer of Age UK Sheppey. The money was raised last year when Mrs Jackie Sheehan, wife of the then Master of the lodge, Colin Sheehan, was Guest of Honour at the Lodge Ladies Night.
Jackie, who works at Halfway Pharmacy, then raised a further £520 in conjunction with her colleagues in the Pharmacy by holding a raffle of a tablet computer that had been very kindly donated to them. Jackie also presented this cheque to Liz Haggart at the lunch, bringing the total donation to £1,770 towards the new Dementia Service at Age UK Sheppey.
