Worshipful Master W.Bro. Jon Creak decided that in his year the Lodge should support local good causes.

Our charity collection in November raised £110 for a Handsworth Scout Group who had had to vacate their meeting place as their Church was closing. January saw £200 raised for Handsworth Girls School to fund book tokens for pupils achieving progress and effort prizes and our March collection raised £100 for the Birmingham Crisis Centre.
