Horncastle, Skegness and Spilsby Masonic Charity Cluster Group (HSSMCCG) Charity presentation
During the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys Festival collection period two years ago, the Horncastle, Skegness and Spilsby Masonic Charity Cluster Group (HSSMCCG) was set up and it raised a considerable sum for the festival. It comprises the Craft Lodge Charity Stewards in Horncastle, Skegness and Spilsby and puts on various events working together to raise funds for, initially RMTGB but now local charities and Good causes. The group not only raises funds through running events such as charity recipient quiz nights and an annual steam day at a private railway, but additionally acts as a forum for discussion and having fun. Wives, partners, friends and relatives are also involved on the committee.
Following another successful year of fund raising events in 2017, the HSSMCCG members once again considered applications for charity grants, and £500 was donated to each of five charities/Good causes represented and all attendees were duly presented with their cheques and invited to inspect the Horncastle Lodge premises after the presentation.
