Pharos Charitable Donation to Macmillan Cancer Support
On the 29th of June at Wootton Village Hall our Worshipful Master, WBro Roger Gabriel, held a lodge BBQ to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The event was well supported with members not only from Pharos, but United Industrious, Old Harveians, Shorncliffe and others. When local villagers were made aware of the Charity event, and who would be the recipient of the funds raised, many of them also attended. Our thanks go to those who helped set up, cook, run the day and who cleaned up afterwards.
A total of £625 was raised, and the monies were sent to Macmillan Cancer Support a couple of months ago, but due to holidays and sickness, it was not possible to arrange a meeting until Tuesday the 29th October, to make the formal donation. We therefore thank Emma Hammett for helping to arrange the date, and especially Christine Hall from the Deal Branch who journeyed over in blustery conditions for the cheque presentation from our Worshipful Master and the Photo opportunity.
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.
