Lodge Thorntree No. 512 Donates to Local Learning Centre

The recent annual charity bowls match between Lodge Thorntree No.512 and Thornliebank Bowling Club raised a grand total of £575.

On Monday, October 29, brethren from the Lodge attended the Jimmy Dunnache Family Learning Centre in nearby Arden where RWM Bro. Terry Robinson handed over a cheque for that amount.  The money will be used to replace toys and equipment stolen in a break-in earlier this year.

RWM of Lodge Thorntree, Bro. Terry Robinson hands over the cheque to Nadia Mathieson of the Jimmy Dunnachie Centre.

Bro. Terry said:  “I would like to thank the bowling club and its members for helping our lodge raise such a magnificent sum.

“We like to find a deserving local charity to donate to and when we learned of the break-in at this centre we were delighted to help.”

Bro. Terry also noted that not only had Lodge Thorntree won the bowls match against Thornlebank Bowling Club but had also won two of the three bowling trophies in Provincial competitions this year!
