Many of you will remember the very successful 2nd Northern Masonic Variety Show which was held at Bradford Grammar School in April 2018.
The Show was organised by members of Bradfordians Craft Lodge No 9886 and Bradfordians Lodge also ran the bars at the event, with all proceeds going to the West Yorkshire 2023 MBF Festival.
Everyone enjoyed themselves, but just as importantly the event raised a very significant amount for our 2023 Festival and for the Mark Benevolent Fund.
The final handover of proceeds took place at the Installation Meeting of Bradfordians Lodge on 12th January 2019, with the Provincial Grand Master , R.W.Bro. Jim Steggles, being presented with a cheque for £1416, bringing the final income from the Show to over £12,000. A wonderful effort by everyone concerned.
The Provincial Grand Master then informed the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Mark Sheldon, that the amount raised actually qualified Bradfordians Lodge for a Grand Patron Gold Award from the M.B.F., and to the surprise of everyone present went on to present the Lodge with a certificate to recognise that achievement.
An excellent result all round – and long may the excellent relationship between the Craft and the Mark in this Province continue.
