Croydon answers charity call

Croydon Circle Immediate Past President Ken Lee was delighted with the support received for his chosen charity, the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Over the 2014/15 Presidential Year, Brothers, Wives, Widows and friends raised almost £4000 before accounting for gift aided donations.  Events ranged from raffles to a sponsored Circle ‘Walk and Run’, Christmas card stamp donations, participation in the Charity’s own Marsden March, and a number of other generous donations.

Bro. Ken and his wife Tina were delighted to receive a certificate from the Royal Marsden for the total raised, on behalf of the Circle.

Grand President supports Croydon May Supper

Croydon Circle was delighted to welcome Bro. Grand President Peter Woodford and his Wife Anne to their Annual May Supper this year, together with a large party of visiting Brothers from across Province 19 and beyond. Two Past Grand Presidents were also present, Bro. Gerald Soane and Croydon’s Bro. John Barrie.

Following the monthly Circle meeting, Brothers their Wives and guests were able to relax and socialise whilst enjoying a pleasant meal.  The consistent level of support for the event explains why it has become a firm feature in the Circle and Provincial calendars, as well as a positive advert for the social side of the Association.
