The recently held Old English Night at Dephis Lodge heralded another wave of charitable giving to local organisations. Over the past decades Delphis has consistently recorded the highest per capita giving within the Province of Herefordshire, generously supported by the Vaga, Delphis, Coningsby Charitable Trust as once again most evident on this occasion.
W Bro Kevin Lyons, Worshipful Master of Delphis Lodge, and his Wardens Brothers Ian Talboys and John Crooks, by example, supported the following proposals put by W Bro David Knowles and W Bro Don Lane which were universally approved:
- £1,000 Blackmarston School, plus £304 from the draw & £105 from the auction
- £1,000 Haven Breast Cancer Support Centre
- £1,000 Robocap
- £1,000 Herefordshire Masonic Charity Associations (HMCA) 'B' Fund used for petitions from local charities
- £30 Teddies for Loving Care for Hereford Hospital from the auction of one of the teddy bears
Such dedicated giving promises well for the future, including the next Festival to be awarded to the Province of Herefordshire.
