Service Opportunity – as a Dragon 

Service Opportunity – as a Dragon 

Please see attached the dates and locations for the next round of Dragons Den panels where we are looking for 2 Freemasons to receive the “pitch” of the Prince’s Trust teams students and allocate funding from the £75,000 grant we made to commemorate Coronation year. 

I’m keen that as many of our members as possible have the opportunity to participate in this volunteer role providing valuable masonic service to our communities.  

ProvGCS Paul Quinn will receive expressions of interest and allocate. 

I suggest no more than 1 Dragon from the autumn 2023 wave be allocated to each panel with the second dragon being new to the role. 

Time commitment is about 1 hour on the date listed and another hour in week 12 to attend the student’s end of course presentation.
