W Bro Peter Cound, Master of Barnard Lodge 5100, together with his Partner Pam, have recently hosted a Ladies to Dine evening at Severn Street Masonic Temple. Joined by ladies, brethren and non-masonic guests they enjoyed an excellent, relaxed evening in convivial surroundings.
Thanks to the generosity of all those attending, a raffle was held, generating the sum of £120. This was in aid of the Primrose Hospice based in Worcester. This is an independent charity supporting patients and families living with a life-limiting illness, providing a Day Hospice, Family Support Service and at Home Service, relying entirely on donations to fund its free services.
