Drakley and other officers of the Lodge presents a cheque for £500 to Roger Blown, Chair of RNLI Walmer, as money raised during his year as Master.

The Lodge endeavours to raise over £2000 per year for charitable causes and new members are always welcome, contact secretary1206@btinternet.com for details.

Freemasonry continues to raise funds and make donations throughout the UK.

The 3 Faversham Lodges, the Royal Arch Chapter and the Rose Croix have raised a total of £2,000 to support the Faversham food bank.

This will go to fill the gaps left by public donations of food which do not always give some of the more specialised items that are needed.

The craft and Chapter contributed £850, which was doubled through match funding by the Cornwallis East Kent Freemason’s Charity. The Rose Croix Harmony Jubilee Chapter contributed a further £100, and a private donation from a brother made the sum up to £2,000.

There will be formal presentation at a time to be arranged. 
More details about the East Kent Cornwallis Freemasons Charity, can be found on their website.
