The fund raising was largely attributed to our "Shorts & Shades Night" held on 30 June 2018. when the sum of £1,476.00 was raised.

Within this figure, Bro. John Fraser PM, contributed by volunteering to have his head shaved on the night of the event, securing a tidy donation of some £500.00, John also took part in a sponsored cycle run that boosted our fund raising sum.

Well done Past Master John, thank you for your tremendous efforts.
