M S Merlin Centre – Presentation of New Mini Bus and Sensory Equipment

The Provincial Grand Master Kevin Hicks and the members of the Mark Masons of Cornwall are absolutely delighted to receive the news that our MBF are presenting the Merlin Centre with a new Mini Bus and to fully equip their new sensory room on the 11th May 2017. The Mini Bus will be available for all to view at the Provincial meeting on the 12th May 2017 between 10 and 12 at the Atlantic Hotel.

It is the MBF’s hope that the provision of this mini bus and equipment, which has been financed entirely by Mark Freemasons, will enable Cornwall MS sufferers to be offered high class local treatment and to alleviate the stresses and strains of having to travel long distances.

Cornwall Support for the Mark Benevolent Fund Charity Walk

I am delighted to confirm that the Province of Cornwall will be taking part in the Mark Charity Walk on 6th May, in support of the Mark Benevolent fund. The event follows the route of the “The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk” covering seven miles, through four Royal Parks and is the first time such a one-day event has been attempted by the MBF.

The team from Cornwall will consist of myself, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master V W Bro Peter Johns, his wife Carole, our Provincial Deputy Grand Secretary W Bro Simon Trevains who is also our Walk Liaison Officer and his wife Denise.

The Mark Benevolent Fund is dedicated to bringing relief and support quickly and as we know makes a very real difference to the lives of many people. This event provides an opportunity for us to raise funds to help others and have fun in doing it, I hope you nad the Lodges within the Province will sponsor your Walk Team by clicking the “Donate” icon to the right and making your donation.
Your donation can, if you wish, be credited to a personal MBF Honorific.
Thank you, in anticipation for your support.
