Masonic Golden support
Keynsham Masonic Hall hosted an informal evening on March 24 with friends and family celebrating the generosity of the Cornucopia Lodge members. With a number of fundraising events and raffles they raised the magnificent sum of £1,000 for the Golden-Oldies Charity and its work with older isolated people.
During the evening, Mike Richardson a trustee of Goldies was presented with a cheque on behalf of Cornucopia Lodge by their Master, Jonathan Watts and Barry McCormack, assistant Provincial Grand Master. Mike told everyone that it would be put towards initiatives in the local area for older people and supporting more of the Goldies popular daytime SING&SMILE sessions.
The Goldies Charity Shop in Keynsham high street opened 2 years ago where it is run in partnership with another successful local charity Dorothy House.
Throughout the evening the happy revellers were entertained by Mission Impossible 2, comprising singer Rowland Smith and keyboard player Steve Lawrence, who coincidently was the organiser of the evening and secretary of Cornucopia Lodge
