Friday 27th November was a great night for Charity, Lodge of Hope No. 6854 at its regular 4th Friday Meeting at Altrincham Masonic Hall was awarded with its 2016 Festival Patronage Certificate which was prented to WBro David Griffin the Worshipful Master by Colin Ross the Provincial Grand Charity Steward. The Lodge worked a superb 3rd Degree with WBro Martin Richard Barlow APGM for Area 3 acting as Junior Warden. The Lodge entertained 5 Brethren who are regular visitors from Lodge St Andrew No 48. At the Festive Board a Bumper Raffle raised a magnificent £200 in aid of the TLC Appeal. All together an excellent evening of benefit to the Charities, fine ritual and good fellowship.
