WHAT’S ON at KAT58

Regular Meeting, Tyle 7.30pm:
Scottish Freemasons made history by presenting a cheque for more than £1 million to Prostate Scotland. It is the first time the Grand Lodge of Scotland, whose members are spread across the globe, has raised such a vast sum to be given to a single recipient.
“I would also like to say a special thank you to Mrs Dawn Oliff and her staff who have carried out an immense amount of administrative work in respect of the project.”
The Grand Lodge of Scotland embarked on the appeal to help increase awareness of prostate disease, its symptoms and the treatments available. The money was raised thanks to a collective effort by thousands of freemasons who devised a huge range of fund-raising initiatives. The most recent was a zip slide which contributed nearly £50,000 to the appeal.
