WOW – we announce our first $1000 donation for the Scout Opportunity Fund. On February 22nd with Scouts NZ we launched the Scout Opportunity Fund as a source of support for children who simply cannot afford to join our Scouts adventure. We’ve received a number of donations but this first $1000 donation is top. It is from a Scout Associate who wrote “I was fortunate to attend the recent reception at Government House and was very impressed with Kate [Te Wano]’s speech.” A very generous contribution indeed.
Next festival is Saturday April 7 2018 hosted by Venture Lodge No 8198 at Whitley Bay, Northumberland
We will be participating once again at the Gilwell Reunion 2018 on Saturday September 7th 2018 . For further details contact Andy Gillard
A success for the KLA! Our pitch was hardly ever empty with a wide array of people visiting to introduce themselves as Freemasons, as well as others seeing how we can help, some just curious and some nice thank you visits from representatives of groups that Freemasonry had supported.
