Presentation to the Peter le Marchant Charity

Worshipful Brother John Pinkstone, Master of the Lodge in 2008-09 is pictured presenting a cheque for £500.00 to Mr Charles Grace, Managing Director of the Peter le Marchant Trust, at their office on the Grand Union Canal in Loughborough during March 2011. The money was part of the funds raised from charity collections during Bro. John’s year as Master of Burbach Lodge.

The Trust organises canal trips for the disabled and handicapped and provides three fully equipped canal boats which cater for both carers and patients. One boat is used for day trips, one for trips of up to four days and the other can be hired for self-catering family holidays. The Trust is supported solely from donations and crewed by volunteers.

Our photograph shows the donation being presented to Mr Grace by: W. Bro. John Pinkstone together with Bro. Maurice Jones who was the Senior Steward during the year.
