Matched Funding Grant to the Bury Branch of the RNLI – Bury District News

Matched Funding Grant to the Bury Branch of the RNLI

In November of last year the Freemasons Grand Charity offered match funding of £1,000 to a suitable project in each Province. The Prince of Wales Lodge, 1012, in the Bury District, applied for a grant of £1,000 from the Community Fund for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, to match the Grand Charity offer. The application was successful with the Community Fund Committee adding a further £500 making a total of £2,500 to this very worthwhile cause.

On March 7th, APGM WBro Norman Cope joined with the Worshipful Master of the Prince of Wales Lodge, WBro William Whitton to present the cheque to the RNLI representatives from the Bury Ladies Guild of the RNLI.
