Monday, November 30th, 2015

At the Installation of WBro. Phil Robbins as master of Penrice Lodge No. 4172 on 27th November 2015, the Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro. Gareth Jones, OBE, presented a cheque for £1,000 to W.Bro. Phil, on behalf of ‘Y Dalaith’. WBro. Phil received the cheque in his capacity as Chairman of the Jacobs Ladder, Lift Appeal Fund, Swansea.

The appeal fund committee are attempting to raise £75,000 over the next 3 to 5 years, for the supply and installation of an elevator lift and two wheelchair lifts.

The project will provide a facility to the Swansea Masonic Hall, that will enable those brethren with restricted mobility an easier route to the temples and meeting rooms. The £1,000 donation received from ‘Y Dalaith’  is a timely reminder of the charitable nature of masonry.
