The Provincial Grand Master’s Appeal

The Provincial Grand Master’s appeal will benefit two Somerset Charities,
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and the City of Wells St John Ambulance. It may well be remembered that in the year 2000 on a particularly sunny afternoon in Wells and following Evensong at the Cathedral, the Mark Master Masons of Somerset, headed by the then Provincial Grand Master Tony Hick, presented a new Crusader Ambulance to St. John, City of Wells Division. The Ambulance was part of a donation of 40 such vehicles donated by the Mark Benevolent Fund throughout England; the gift was valued in excess of £2million. It is the wish of our present PGM David Nelson that his Project Fund will provide sufficient funds to purchase an ECG Monitor to turn our Crusader into a Paramedic Ambulance. The second project will be the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. It is hoped to purchase two dogs and sponsor their training, thus enabling an improvement in the quality of life for two disabled Somerset people...Pat Morissey
