The sun was shining for Pilkington Lodge’s Bro Neil Campbell and his wife Alwyn when the District Charity Steward Steve Clark delivered the first prize in the District Dinner Raffle – £500 in cash.  Just like the gentleman that he is, Neil allowed Alwyn to open the envelope containing the cash and he then announced “Alwyn, we are going on holiday!”
This is not the first occasion that Pilkington Lodge has scooped the first prize in recent.  It is only two years ago that another member of Pilkington Lodge walked away with the first prize.
The other winners were
£250 in cash                                                                               Malcolm Ashton                Earl of Lathom Lodge
VIP tickets to the Fusiliers Musical Spectacular:              Ged Egan                           Egerton Lodge
Bottle of Bourbon                                                                     Jim Hodge                              Lodge of Merit
On behalf of the District, our chairman Steve Barton thanks everyone who has been involved in the raffle through selling or buying tickets.  A total of £700 was raised which has been donated to the East Lancashire Masonic Charity.
