‘Maggies’ at Clatterbridge offers free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their family and friends. ‘Maggies’ have been a great source of information and support for a number of Lodge Members. The ethos of ‘Maggies’ is based on a Kitchen Table scene, around which you can seat, discuss, share and ask questions in a relaxed homely situation.
This Fund Raising Event was a ‘Maggies Kitchen Table’ Event which was attended by over 65 supporters. The sum raised on the day, which included Masonic Donations, Money raised via a ‘Just Giving’ Account (set up for those unable to attend), Raffle and sale of Tea/Coffee and Cake has so far exceeds £1318.75.
The photographs about show some of those who attended which included The Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Pat Hackett, Local MP Frank Field, Gary Horstman (APGM Area 2) and his good Lady Susan, Neil Eaton, Malcolm Cooke (Lodge Charity Rep) and Steph Dejonge (Maggies Fund Raiser). An initial Cheque of £500.00 was presented and the rest will follow.
Phoenix Lodge wish to thank everyone who supported the event and Julie & Nick Champion and staff of The Shrewsbury Lodge Hotel for their hard work and support.
