£250 The TLC Appeal, Teddies for Loving Care, TLC’s simple objective is for Freemasons to provide teddy bears, principally to Hospital Accident and Emergency units, but also to others in need for the medical and administration staff to give at their discretion, to children admitted who are in severe distress and here the staff feel that a teddy to cuddle will help alleviate that distress and to assist them in their urgent work.
£250 LEMBA The Long Eaton Masonic Benevolent Association, LEMBA is the central registered charity that co-ordinates certain charitable donations by all the lodges and side degrees at Long Eaton Masonic Hall.
The Freemasons of Derbyshire are delighted to be asked to help organise this wonderful event. Our goal is to give the children and adults a marvellous experience, when for a day they can forget about their difficulties and truly enjoy themselves.

The December meeting of Mundy Grove Lodge (506) saw the culmination of the Three Peaks Challenge with the presentation of a cheque to the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master J G R Rudd, with many of those brethren that took part in the event being present.
