Grand Patron status for Anchorsholme Lodge

At the installation meeting of Anchorsholme Lodge No 5854 at Cleveleys Masonic Hall, one of the cheques given to charities was for the magnificent sum of £4,500, pledged to the Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival.

This resulted in the lodge being able to be granted Grand Patron status, a fantastic achievement in itself, but made even more remarkable in that it is still three months before the festival is officially launched.

Regional Charity Steward Ted Rhodes was on hand to present it to the newly installed master of Anchorsholme Lodge Paul Darlington and the immediate past master Ivan Hicks, with a commemorative certificate to mark the achievement.
