Dorset Freemasons Support DorSAR

Dorset Search and Rescue (DorSAR) - www.dorsar.org.uk - is a team of highly trained volunteers who work with the Police, Coastguard and other emergency services in search and recovery of missing persons, swift water and flood water rescue, search and recovery of significant objects and support at major incidents. Brethren of London Haven Lodge, no.7300, presented the local charity with a cheque for £1000 during the Christmas meeting. The event was attended by wives, partners and Lodge widows, as well as undergraduates who joined through the UGLE Universities Scheme.

For the past three or more decades, the Christmas meetings at London Haven Lodge has welcomed members of the Bournemouth Gilbert and Sullivan Productions (better known as Bournemouth GaSP) - http://bournemouthgasp.org.uk/ Through Carol singing at Masonic Lodges and elsewhere, the society has raised more than £90,000 for the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital - www.macmillanlocal.org - a Specialist Palliative Care Unit for patients in South East Dorset and South West Hampshire. This year's donation from the Lodge contributed to more than £2000 having been raised during 2019 by Bournemouth GaSP.
