The following is an article taken from Byker Masonic Hall Newsletter in May 2011:

We are pleased to announce that the Social Evening held on Saturday 30th April and the follow-up talk at Newcastle 24 Lodge on Friday 20th May for Help for Heroes, raised £1,254.20.

The cheque was presented to Rob Richardson and Tim Mayland from Help for Heroes by W. Bro. Brian Rudd, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master on behalf of all Northumberland Masons, friends and families who helped to raise this wonderful figure. It has been a truly united effort and support by many with Bill Taylor and his raffle team, George Tuck, Bob Lockhart with their various parties to name but a few on the social evening along with the hard work of all those volunteers including Michael Parker, Will Laing and Michael Jarvie.

Thanks also to the band, Special Brew (c/o Bob Lockhart) for giving their services as well as Bill Tindle and Monkchester Lodge for the Whisky draw. Likewise to Rob and Tim from Help for Heroes for giving up their time with a very informative talk and not forgetting the host Lodge, Newcastle 24 and Reserved Forces, Commercial Travellers and St.Raphael Lodges for sending their deputations, Keith Kennedy and John Armstrong (harmony) as well as everyone who supported both events.

Thank you all!!
