Shaftesbury Lodge raises £600 for Local Girl Guide Project

Shaftesbury's Lodge of Friendship and Sincerity organised a quiz evening to raise funds for the local Girl Guides. Nearly 100 people had a fun filled evening as their general knowledge was tested.

Together with a donation from the Lodge and a local pub, The Ship Inn, £600 was raised.

The local Guides are attempting to raise £80,000 to enable them to extend their temporary meeting place, Lindlar Hall, and make this hall a permanent home for them.

Before the Lodge's donation, over £20,000 has been raised and the Guides are confident that by Spring 2018 they will have raised £50,000 to enable the work to start. In addition to financial donations from numerous organisations, the Guides have been helped by businesses providing technical and legal support free of charge.

The Lodge hopes that further fund-raising activities will take place in the future to help the Guides achieve their aim.
