Best foot forward

Keith Pauling of Rathcreedan Lodge, No. 8690, Province of Oxfordshire, set off on a 290-mile walk across the Macmillan Way, from Boston in Lincolnshire, to Chesil Beach in
Dorset, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Three weeks later he completed the formidable journey, raising £3,300 for the charity. He was joined for the last 10 miles by four members of Weyland Lodge, No. 6507, and one of their wives.

In tune for a very good cause

St Edburg’s Lodge, No. 9233, together with other Oxfordshire Freemasons, have backed the Manor Farm Music Festival, which raises money for charities that use creativity as therapy.

The festival was held at Ardley, near Bicester in Oxfordshire, raising funds for the Brackley charity Creative Activities for the Elderly, which provides care home residents with stimulating craft activities, and Thomas’s Fund, which provides music therapy for children with life-limiting illnesses. The successful event arose out of the ladies’ day organised by St Edburg’s Lodge, and the music was an entertaining mix of folk, blues and jazz.
