Money raised from Whisky Draws, Ladies Lunches and other events during his year as Master of the Lodge of Good Intention No.6927 in Barnstaple enabled W.Bro. John Rice to present a cheque to the Barnstaple Youth Rugby Club of £600 to help purchase T-Shirts and ‘Hoodies’.
The whole Youth Club of 400 boys and girls from ages 7 to 15 have now been kitted out with T-Shirts and Hoodies bearing the Masonic 300 year Logo, and Logos of other sponsors, partly by funding provided by North Devon Freemasons.
Barnstaple Youth Rugby Club is so successful that there is now a waiting list for youngsters to join and their results are superb!
