Guernsey Freemasons donate £500 to local animal charity

Thursday, 02 May 2019

St Martin's Lodge No. 4142, in the Province of Guernsey & Alderney, held a Ladies Night fundraiser in March 2019 to help raise £500 for the Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

The event was held at the Les Cotils Christian Centre prior to the proceeds being presented by the Master of the Lodge to the Manager of GSPCA

Steve Byrne, GSPCA Manager, said: ‘We are incredibly thankful to all of St Martin's Lodge for their extremely kind and generous donation of £500 raised at their Ladies Night.

‘With over 500 animals in our care and the need to build a new Wildlife Hospital at the GSPCA Animal Shelter every penny helps make a huge difference and it is wonderful when we hear of those having a great time while raising funds to help the many animals in our care.’

Steve Marti, Master of St Martin's Lodge, said: ‘We had a fabulous evening at Les Cotils for our Ladies Night and we are so pleased to be able to donate £500 raised to help the GSPCA and their work." 

‘Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

'A huge thank you to all of the members that helped put on such a fantastic night, Les Cotils for their great service and food and of course to all that supported our Ladies Night.’
