Derbyshire's oldest lodge donate £1,500 to local hospice

Monday, 01 January 2018

Guy Raynor-Edwards, Immediate Past Master of Tyrian Lodge No. 253, presented a cheque for £1,500 to Ashgate Hospicecare in Chesterfield

This was Guy's chosen charity for his year in the chair of Derbyshire's oldest lodge, with Ashgate Hospicecare having cared for his mother in the past.

He organised and presented a Wild West evening in June 2017, which was greatly enjoyed by many brethren and family and friends to raise funds for this worthy cause. This included all guests getting into the wild west spirit in suitable attire and taking part in sing-a-longs and line dancing. There was also a performance from the saloon dancing girls from Chaines Dance Studio.

The lodge also kindly agreed to supplement the proceeds of the night from the relief chest to make it a round figure of £1,500.

Guy, along with his wife Linda, and Keith Allen of Cavendish Lodge No. 3055 were given a tour of the hospice and discovered more about the excellent work that they do, as they were warmly thanked by Ashgatecare Hospice's Fundraising Manager Christine Seldon.
