There was great representation from Plymouth Lodges at the Charity Stewards Meeting held at the Mount Edgcombe Masonic hall on Thursday 21st March 2019, with 47 Brethren in attendance.
After opening remarks and updates from W.Bro. Reuben Ayres and W.Bro. Adrian Rogers there was an open forum with many challenging questions from the floor.
W. Bro. Chris Yard APGM spoke with great feeling about two particular case studies where assistance had been received from the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF). He emphasised that although he does not want any of the Brethren of Devonshire to need charity, support is readily available from the MCF and the Festival provides us with the opportunity to focus on giving to what is in fact our Charity.
The evening concluded with a feast of a buffet provided by W.Bro. Roger Lillicrap and his wife Barbara.
