On Saturday 6th October 2018, The Oakwood Lodge No 1126 based in Sale, held a very successful curry afternoon, organised by W.Bro Ryan Ward, the lodge Charity Steward. The event at the Qurashi Indian restaurant in Romiley, Stockport, was in aid of the AADC Research Trust (Reg Charity No. 5407899).

AADC (Aromatic Amino Acid Decarboxylase deficiency) affects only 130 children around the World. It is a genetically inherited neurological disorder affecting the brain’s ability to produce neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin. These are two of the most essential neurotransmitters for everyday living! One of these children lives in Stockport and the Lodge was delighted that Marcus Allen and his family could share in the event.

The objective of the event, along with being an outreach opportunity for The Oakwood Lodge was to raise awareness around AADC. With this in mind, please can you take 2 minutes out of your busy schedule to watch the following link which explains the condition further:-

The event, which was attended by over 50 people including Lodge members, family and friends including children, was thoroughly enjoyed by all present and raised £600 to aid the Trust in their important research.
