W.Bro David Dawson made a donation with a difference at our 200 year celebrations by donating Derek, the travelling teddy. The idea being that Derek is raffled off using Gift Aid donations and the winner then takes possession of Derek and arranges to raffle him again, either at their own lodge or on a visit. The principle being that any funds raised should be donated to the Provincial Teddy Bear Fund. Each winner is asked to take an unusual photo of Derek and we will publish it here on the website under Derek's Travels. Here is Derek's letter of introduction to the lodge.
