Meeting with East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited. (Executive Committee member John Crawford)
This evening three senior team members had the pleasure once again of a meeting with John Crawford, the Treasurer of the Executive Committee of the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited.
The East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited is the Masonic Charity of the East Lancashire Mark Freemasons, representing some 96x Masonic Lodges.
Readers may recall that in 2008 on two seperate occasions the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited very kindly donated to the team the fantastic total amount of £2,500.00.
Present at tonights meeting from the team were our Team Chairman Ken Oakes, Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE, and Life Vice President Tony McNally.
The reason for tonights visit was for John Crawford as the representative for the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited to further discuss with our team representatives how they are planning to help and support the team with particular regards to linking such support to their 2010 Centenary Year.
Johns visit was to update the team on this support since he last visited the team alongside other members of the Executive Committee of the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited on August 20th this year.
Following this very important meeting, the team is extremely pleased to announce that the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited, will be supporting the team in a very large, major and significant way in 2010.
At present we have been asked to keep all details of this amazing support confidential to the team, with an announcement of what exactly the support entails being made public by the team in association with the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited, in late April 2010, keep watching our ’news’ pages.
The team is very honoured to be receiving the continuing support of our friends at the East Lancashire Mark Benevolent Fund Limited, and in turn we will be present with our team vehicles and a search and rescue equipment demonstration , as per 2008 and 2009, at the East Lancashire Mark Fellowship Day at Middleton Masonic Club, Manchester Old Road, Middleton, M24 4DY on Sunday 29th August 2010, from 12.00 noon onwards.
