Jolly Boys Christmas meeting

At the annual ‘Jolly Boys’ Christmas Meeting on Monday 9th December Leopold Lodge 1760 forty members and guests celebrated with a festive board to which potential new members were invited.
A Christmas draw with numerous prizes generously donated by members which raised money for local organisations and charities. At the end of the evening, the following presentations were made:

£250     Salvation Army (to support their Christmas lunch for those in need)

£250     Rainbow Centre ( offering support to those in need in the Scarborough community)

£300     Martin’s House Hospice (based in Boston Spa and providing care and support for children with life-limiting conditions)

£250     St Catherine’s Hospice in Scarborough

£300     Myeloma Cancer Research (a Lodge member is currently being treated for this condition)


Events like this don’t just happen, and it was through the hard work of the Lodge Charity Steward, Kevin Howard (pictured) supported by the Master of Ceremonies Richard Gillett (Senior Warden) that the evening was a complete success. Not forgetting the support of all Lodge members during the year. In recent years this now annual event has attracted new members, and there are good signs this may be the case on this occasion!
