Consequent on the resignation of Kevin Ashcroft as our Group Charity Steward, as a result of his ill health, I am pleased to announce that Keith Williams, PrSGD (Designate) of Excelsior Lodge has been appointed as Kevin’s replacement.
My thanks and best wishes go to Kevin for a speedy recovery and my congratulations go to Keith on his appointment.
As you all know we are now in our Tercentenary year and the 2021 Festival has also begun. This will be an extremely busy time for the Group Charity Steward and the committee who interviewed the candidates decided to appoint Jim Corcoran to assist Keith with special responsibility for raising monies for the period of the Tercentenary celebrations.
Apart from the Grand Tercentenary Ball which is being held at Anfield on Friday 15th September there will probably be further functions to enable us to raise as much as possible for Charity.
Lodge Charity Stewards and Festival Representatives will be encouraged to come up with ideas to make our Group high on the league table for per capita donations and pledges by direct debit.
I encourage you all to complete a direct debit form and get your Festival jewellery. Hopefully everyone at Garston will eventually be proudly wearing the jewel.
