£1.5m pledged in the first year of the Festival
At the April meeting of the Provincial Grand Officers Club, the Pro Provincial Grand Master announced this amazing figure after only 12 months of the Festival.
Also after one year there is 1 Lodge that has achieved Platinum Grand Patron and 4 Lodges Grand Patron.
Many thanks and congratulations are due to all those who have contributed and promoted the Festival in its first year to produce such an amazing total.
As at the end of February 2016 a total of 774 brethren have pledged enough to achieve an honorific.
Given the number of members in Middlesex this is undoubtedly going to increase quite a lot yet.
Have you donated yet and are you wearing your jewel?
