Congratulations to Bro. Gary Sibbald P.M. on being in the Chair for a Military Degree held at Lodge Royal Thistle (The Royal Scots) 1338 and congratulations also to our President of Stewards, Bro. Alex 'Sugar' Clark for taking the post of Junior Deacon.
All the the Office Bearers taking part in the Degree were former serving members of The Royal Scots and a total of £870 was raised on the night. In addition, Lodge Royal Thistle made a donation of £50 to The Royal Scots Benevolent Fund.
The £870 was split between The Mark Wright Project and a fund set up to improve lighting at the Royal Scots Museum at Edinburgh Castle.
As stated on their web site: "The Mark Wright Project actively supports our ex-Service men, women and their families in addressing the invisible wounds of war, easing ex-Service men and women's transition into civilian life."
Their centre is located in Dalkeith and you can visit their web site by clicking HERE.
There will hopefully be a similar event in 2014 at another Lodge in the Provence.
