The Brethren of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482 have donated £500 towards the village’s 2021 Childrens’ Gala Day.
The cheque was presented by Right Worshipful Master Bro. Stuart Donald to Gala President Steph Wilson who expressed her sincere thanks to the Lodge for such a generous donation in what has been a very difficult fund-raising year.
The money was raised by way of 482’s monthly ‘Good Causes’ raffle and Bro. Stuart said: “We’re delighted to once again being able to support Kirkliston Childrens’ Gala and we wish Queen Sofia, her Court and everyone involved all the very best on their big day.”
Bro. Stuart added: “Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482 are proud to have been part of the village for over 150 years and we look forward to supporting and being involved with the local Kirkliston community in the years ahead.”
And over the years, brethren from the village have played their part in the Gala. Present Master, Stuart Donald was Crown Bearer in 1969, a post also performed by Past Master Gordon Yeoman in 1972 with another local, Past Master Stuart White, being Champion in 1976. And Andy Gray played his part as a Yeoman of the Guard.
