Held at the Lothersdale Hotel, in Morecambe, the event brought together 20 local and national charities which have benefitted from donations made by the Masonic lodges of the group over the year.

Chairman of Lancashire County Council, County Councillor Margaret Brindle and her consort William Brindle and the then Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Jon Barry joined hundreds of attendees.

Each of the charities explained the work they do in the community and the importance of donations to their ongoing success.
