Durham Freemasons Support Royal British Legion Stockton branch

Durham Freemasons Charity and Tees Lodge No.509, were proud and honoured to support the Royal British Legion Stockton branch to assist in the 80th D-Day Anniversary event and to support veterans of the Armed Forces. Representatives of the Charity and members Tees Lodge attended a magnificent festival of remembrance at the Globe Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees. The presentation of a matched funding grant of £1000 to Lin Simpson of the local British Legion branch was made by Ian Tranter Lodge Charity Steward and Tom Gittins representing Durham Freemasons Charity. Also pictured is Owen Parkes a member of Tees Lodge who is a very active British Legion standard bearer who took part in the evenings proceedings. The Local Mayors of Stockton on Tees and Thornaby on Tees were present, along with Deputy Lord- Lieutenant Neil Schneider, DL.

The Festival of Remembrance featured many acts including local children and young people who took part in singing activities. This was a fitting tribute to such a momentous time in our history. The evening was concluded with much dignity, a fall of Poppies and silence. A super example of local Freemasons making a difference to the lives of others. Stronger Together.
