AMetGM VW Bro. Ian Currans received a cheque for £4,000 on behalf of the Metropolitan Masonic Charity in support of the appeal to raise £2m towards the cost of a 2nd Air Ambulance for London in the "Your London, Your Helicopter" campaign. The cheque was presented to him by Kynaston Studd Lodge No. 5416 on his visit to the Lodge as part of a "Talking Heads –The Next Step: Into The Royal Arch" presentation (see Freemasonry Today Autumn 2015).
WM Mike Binsted said "London Freemasons are well over half way to raising our target of £2m to put a second Air Ambulance in the sky over London and so extend the flying hours and capability of the London Air Ambulance advanced trauma team. I am both pleased and tremendously proud of our Lodge members in raising and donating the £4,000 presented today, which forms part of this Lodge's support for the appeal."
Congratulating the Lodge, Bro. Currans said "I am stunned by the generosity of Kynaston Studd members in supporting this appeal which has captured the imagination of London Freemasons. The additional Air Ambulance will be of great benefit to the populous of London and will be a very visible sign of the charitable efforts and community commitment of all London Masons."
