Fundraising TEA Afternoon for Florence Nightingale Hospice
Members of Buckinghamshire lodge Haddenham No. 8944 helped out Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity’s local fundraising group with their popular afternoon tea event.
The event raised more than £2,000 from cream tea sales, grand spring draw tickets and a tombola.
Angela Hart, Haddenham Community Group leader said: ‘We are very grateful to the people of Haddenham for coming along to support the hospice. A huge thank you must go to the brilliant team of volunteers who put on the event.’
Ever since its consecration on the 17th February 1981, Haddenham Lodge has been a leader in lodge social activities with an extensive calendar each year.
The lodge has a stable social calendar of local community activities, including big band nights, summer and winter beer festivals and quiz nights – and each events is open to anyone who would live to attend.
In 2014 the two beer festivals raised £1,000, and the garden party £850. Approximately £6,000 in total is given by Haddenham Lodge to local good causes and some charities recommended by Provincial Grand Lodge every year.
