Bute charity Calum’s Cabin is £635 richer thanks to a donation from the Provincial Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Argyll and the Isles.
Many members from all over Scotland were present at the ‘fun’ night which was held recently, and the new superintendent, Iain Morrison, reports that a most enjoyable evening was had by all.
Duncan Speirs from Calum’s Cabin was delighted to be presented with the cheque by Mr Morrison and Brian Green, treasurer of the local branch of the Royal Arch, on Monday morning at The Buteman office. Having taken over the mantle of Superintendent of the Province from John Hackett, Dunoon, it is Mr Morrison’s job for the next five years to see that all Royal Arch Chapters in the Argyll and the Isles area are being run in conformity with the byelaws of the Supreme Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Scotland.
The Supreme Grand Chapter with the support of all the other Provinces in Scotland are in the process of raising cash for research into dementia being conducted at the University of Stirling. To date the chapter has amassed almost £100,000 - and that figure is still rising. That said, there will still be fund-raising activities held for local charities within the Argyll area.
