Charity Work

The members of Lodge St Margaret 548 sent 30 boxes of chocolates to Scottish Ambulance Service control in Queensferry to express our gratitude for all their hard work around the clock.

Social distancing was of course a priority and luckily prevented any LSM548 members from being present in the photograph.

​Brother Richard Buffery started walking on the 7th September 2015 from Montpellier in the South of France right through France to the channel. Richards long sponsored walk raised the grand sum of £2500 which was handed over to the Sick Kids Foundation.

Our very own brother John Anderson in the middle of a sponsored run for charity. John ran 5k a day for 50 days & raised a total of £2,000 for local charities. Beneficiary of John’s endeavours was South Queensferry’s Churches Care in the Community.

Well done John!
