Charity Burns' Night Supper

Once again this year the Grand Priory kept a Scottish themed evening, raising funds for SUROL
our charity in Sri Lanka (under the patronage of Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith)
which assists those affected by leprosy.

Pictured above are three of our newest members who eschewed the usual type of dressing up aprons to soldier away in the kitchen, serving up the traditional fare of Haggis with Neeps and Tatties.
Active members prepared to role their sleeves up are a great asset to the Grand Priory and its work.

The evening was hosted by our Grand Prior, Chev. Anthony Dickinson (centre)
here sharing a joke with the Much Honoured Baron of Horsbrugh, Michael Chenery

The evening has so far raised about £400 for SUROL.
