In order to keep with tradition and make a difference within the local community, Brethren of Lodge Royal Braemar donated funds to 1st Fintray Brownies who have recently established themselves and have already attracted a healthy number of local girls. With excellent support from parents the Group have certainly got off to the best possible start. Monies donated will be put towards pop-up tents for the girls to enjoy indoor and outdoor camping expeditions.
The Lodge further donated to a great charity – Hamish Dear’s Warm Hugs; where money goes towards making children smile during their toughest battles, whether it be through receiving a cinema ticket or short break voucher. Small things can make a big difference and with the charity close to several Lodge Members, they were only delighted to assist. Congratulations to the brave parents and friends that founded the charity that has gone on to raise over £60,000 in less than a year.
