With a fistful of dollars and European currency, two Chester Freemasons hand over their impromptu returns from a Mediterranean cruise to Cheshire’s Assistant Provincial Grand Master as a contribution to the Grand Charity.
On board the Grand Princess in Autumn last year, W Brothers James Dandy and Mike Hughes of Deva Lodge No. 3447 met up with old chum W Brother Richard Gieir of Wichita, Kansas, and with other cruise members mustered a Lodge of some 30 brethren. Their alms plate amassed some £230 and all agreed it should be donated to the The Freemasons' Grand Charity. It was handed over to Cheshire’s Assistant Provincial Grand Master George W. Mann for onward transmission to Grand Lodge.
