Canford lodge helps local children!

Worshipful Master Steve Groves has presented £1778 to two local charities on behalf of Canford Lodge.

In an unusual move Canford Lodge invited representatives from two local charity's to attend their festive board to receive their cheques.

They wined, dined and entertained Judith Stevens from the Southampton Hospital baby heart unit and Lizzie Sutherland from Wave 105's Mission Christmas royally in true Canford style

The baby unit does what it says on the box and the mission Christmas gathers cash and gifts so that over 30,000 under priviliged children receive a present at Christmas who might not do so.

The ladies joined in with enthusiasm and both won raffle prizes but the most interesting thing was that neither of them knew that we raise money for good causes outside Freemasonry.

After hearing the ladies talk about the work of their charities to their amazement they received offers of assistance from a professional Santa and Alex Clarke the well known local singer and entertainer

What a wonderful way to raise the profile of Dorset Freemasonry in general.

Well done Canford!!
