W. Bro´s David James, Old Tower Lodge No 49, and Mel Young, Installed Masters Lodge No 108, along with Janet James and Jo Young, visited the San Jose Obrero Orphanage in Orihuela on Friday 7th July, to present the Director and staff with 35 Lightweight Sleeping Bags, 35 pairs of Scuba Shoes and 35 Aluminium water bottles.
This equipment is needed for children who are going to take part in this years summer camp.
The Director of the Orphanage has organised two camps in which 70 children will take part.
The first 35 children will go on the 24th July, and the second group will
go at the end of August where they will take part in camping, trekking,
white water rafting and lots more fun activities.
The funds were raised from a Race Afternoon organised by Old Tower Lodge, an afternoon where we enjoyed a buffet prepared by Janet, and racing organised by the DC, David Beale, where more than 800 euros was raised. The remainder raised from Charity Funds by the Installed Masters lodge. W. Bro David stated on behalf of the W. Master and Brethren that it is very heartwarming to be able to donate this much needed equipment to help the children enjoy what will be a fantastic Summer camp with lots of fabulous activities.
