Gordon Turnbull, the Immediate Past Master at Lodge St Andrew (Denny & Loanhead) No 176, recently paid a social visit to Strathcarron Hospice to make a donation from the Lodge.

Campaign Coordinator Marion Blaney accepted the cheque for £500 on behalf of the Hospice. The money was the proceeds of a Burns Supper which the Lodge then doubled.

Gordon, who has personal experience of the care provided by Strathcarron Hospice, said: “It was a personal pleasure to present the donation on behalf of Lodge St. Andrew No. 176. Our members like other Lodges and Brethren in the Province of Stirlingshire have been great supporters of the Hospice for many years.”
