Achilles University Lodge No. 4078 Supports TLC Appeal and raises the Princely sum of £4,694.50p

On the 15th April 2011 the Achilles University Lodge No. 4078 held their Annual Ladies Night at the “As You Like It”  Restaurant in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne in support of the Northumberland Central Group TLC Appeal.

A hundred people attended this Charity Event and they enjoyed a sumptuous Dinner followed by some excellent Entertainment, and then indulged themselves with a Raffle and a Charity Auction both of which were a resounding success.   The Master W Bro Gur S Sarang said “We expected our members would continue to back our efforts to raise money for charity; this year the TLC Appeal, and they did; their support was fantastic.  In addition Freemasons from Lodges across the region plus their wives, girlfriends and non-masonic friends joined us, and demand for tickets was incredible.  I would like to extend my personal thanks to all who donated prizes, to all who attended and especially those who made such fantastic bids in the auction to make it such a success, both for us and the TLC.”

Gursharan said that he also wished to thank W Bro Sunil Khanna, Bro Shammi Nair, Bro Amar Marwaha and Bro Anoop Puri, who not only organised the whole event but also ran a very profitable dinner (raised £850 profit), an outstanding raffle (£500 profit) and an unbelievable Auction which realised well over £3,000.  The great success of the auction was due primarily to the activities of Sunil and Shammi; it was these two Brethren who formed one of the best double acts ever witnessed to cajole and coerce the diners into parting with their cash.  

The Northumberland Central Group were invited to Achilles University Lodge May meeting to receive the proceeds raised, and W Bro Dennis Frazer, PProvAGReg - Group Secretary/Treasurer, on behalf of the Central Group, gratefully accepted the symbolic cheque pictured below from the Lodge Master W Bro Gur S Sarang, PProvGSwdBr.
