The BMCF (Bucks Masonic Centenary Fund) were delighted to award MK Carers £330 to enable them to treat 30 adult carers to an afternoon tea at Dobbies Garden Centre in Bletchley.
Motor Neurone Research was the focus of the fundraising activities at Grenville Lodge 1787 over the last 12 months, culminating in the presentation of a cheque in the sum of £2,500 to the “All About Ali” charity at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford https://www.aaa.uk.com/
Over the summer, inspired by the Provincial Executive, many Buckinghamshire Freemasons completed a range of challenges to raise funds for various charities and the 2021 MCF festival. Amongst these was W.Bro Dave Harfield who undertook the 1 Million step challenge to raise funds for Diabetes UK.
The amazing amount of £1904 was raised recently when Grand Union Lodge held a Memorial Golf Day in memory of the late Colin Cruse, a Past Master of the Lodge.
Since the 1st July 2019, Dave Harfield has walked over 500 miles, taking more than a million steps in order to raise £875 (and counting) for Diabetes UK as part of their One million step summer challenge https://step.diabetes.org.uk/
If putting the PGM and APGM though 26 miles of pure hell did not give us enough or the fact that over £7000 has been now been raised, we have donated the two double kayaks that were used for the challenge to the Jubilee River Riverside Centre to help people with disabilities get on the water.
