More than 75 Brethren of Grace Dieu Lodge No.2428 and their guests gathered at Lingdale Golf Course in Markfied on the evening of Saturday 15th September. The evening was hosted by W.Bro. Richard Morris, Master of the Lodge. The Brethren together with their families and guests were treated to a series of televised horse races with a Tote betting system, allowing them to pit their wits against the bookies to see if they could correctly select the race winner.
During the course of the evening there was a Hot Roast Buffet, and an excellent raffle with many prizes which helped raise further funds. Everyone agreed that it was a truly excellent evening.
The evening raised over £1,200, which will be divided between the 2022 Festival and ‘Keep The Beat’. Keep the Beat is a small charity dedicated to giving hope and support to those affected by Congenital Heart defects. The Charity supports the Children’s Cardiology Ward (Ward 30) and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Glenfield Hospital.
