At the regular meeting of Ferrers and Ivanhoe Lodge No. 779 in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, a cheque presentation was made to the Leicestershire and Rutland 2022 Festival Chairman Dale Page
On 8th January 2019, Past Master Terry Hueck had the pleasure, on behalf of the lodge, of presenting Dale with a cheque for £2,500, which had been raised during 2018 by its members and families and friends of the lodge at a number of social events. The most significant being a successful hog roast held in the summer.
Dale was pleasantly surprised and delighted to receive the donation into the 2022 Festival funds, saying that ‘such charitable donations give me confidence that the full sum of £1.8 million will be raised across the Province by 2022.'
The lodge is now preparing plans to continue with 2022 Festival fundraising throughout 2019.
