The Cary and Dunluce Masonic Charity Committee came this year to the Causeway Hotel, at The Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills to host their annual Charity Breakfast, which was well attended with Brethren and their families present from all across the Province of Antrim. The morning started around 7.00AM for the members of Committee and their helpers, as they got set up for the official 7.30AM start of the event.
An excellent breakfast was served, and the staff were kept busy right through to the 10.00AM close. Raffle tickets were sold throughout the morning and the draw for the raffle was held around 9.45AM, when the chairman of the organising committee – Wor Bro Gordon Chestnutt, acted as compare.
The two nominated Charities this year were the N.I. Branch of The British Heart Foundation and the North Coast Branch of Autism N.I. Preliminary indications are that a sum, in the region of £ 2,800.00 was lifted on the day. There are usually other donations received by the Committee, from people unable to attend, which will also be added to the aforementioned figure, before the final, official total is announced. One interesting Ballot prize on the day, was a voucher for a new tie won by Rt Wor Bro Jack O’ Dunlop.
