Light Blues Club at it again

28th January 2020

The Light Blues Club of Northumberland’s charity donations continue unabated when they presented their latest cheque at the installation meeting of the Duke of Connaught Lodge.

On this occasion, however, no hijacking of the meeting was required as the person being installed as Master of the lodge, for the first time, was W.Bro Richard Erskine, one of the main supporters of the Light Blues.

As has been previously reported, the Light Blues have been very busy over the last year raising funds for good causes. 

On this occasion, in front of a packed to the rafters festive board, Richard, along with another Light Blues stalwart, W.Bro Nev Johnson, of Delaval Lodge, presented a cheque for £200 to the Teddies For Loving Care.

The TLC is a national programme locally-led by freemasons across England and Wales which provides cuddly bears to Accident and Emergency units for medical staff to give, at their discretion, to young children. The bears are often used by staff to calm children down, reward them for being brave and in some cases demonstrate procedures.  All children who receive a bear get to take it home.

 the Province of Northumberland Communications Team congratulate Richard on attaining the chair of Master and wish him a very enjoyable and productive year.
