On Tuesday 14th November 2017 Hartford Mark lodge held our annual toy presentation for Ashington Salvation Army. This has been an ongoing event for at least 15 years. Moneys collected by both Mark and RAMs are given to Mrs Margot Swinhoe of the Lady Masons, who purchases the toys.
This year we were pleased that the NMBF kindly donated £500 towards our event. The toys and money are used to help out the deprived children of Ashington and Newbiggin who would otherwise be facing a very disappointing Christmas. We were pleased that W.Bro. Richard Northey was able to do presentation of the cheque and toys on behalf of ourselves, and the NMBF.
