TLC Teddies

July 4, 2019

The lodge was delighted to receive the province's "TLC Teddies" team at its July meeting. TLC Teddies is a masonic charity that distributes teddy bears to sick children in hospitals and hospices.

At the second rising the team gave a short talk on the history of this very good cause, and revealed that the live total of the number of teddies distributed in the province now exceeds 93,000 - a fantastic amount!

Later on, members donated over £200 to the team at the festive board and received in return a giant teddy bear - this will be raffled off at a later date.

The lodge thanks the team for paying us a visit and we wish them every success with their endeavours. To find out more about the project, please visit this page.

Rod C.

Rod joined Phoenix Lodge in 1981 but due to personal circumstances, was unable to take the chair when his first opportunity arose. That certainly did not arrest his enthusiasm for the order and for Phoenix in particular, for in the course of the next thirty-odd years he served variously as Warden and filled in for other officers when they were absent. Indeed his service extended to the Province, where he served as a Provincial Grand Steward for many years. At long last, in 2017 he was installed as Master of the Phoenix Lodge, in a ceremony marked as much for its timeliness as its happiness.
