This was yet another milestone day in the Mini-bus Appeal. This appeal which was started with the idea of supplying local (to London) RMBI Care Homes with replacement, specially adapted Mini-buses to a few of the RMBI Care Homes in the Home Counties has now delivered its THIRD!
This time to the Prince George, Duke of Kent RMBI Home in Chislehurst, Kent. And what a day it was.
The presentation was made to the Home by RW Bro David Ashbolt, PGM. He was accompanied by the Assistant Grand Master, Raymond Smith; Bill Divall, DPGM; Jerry Gangadeen, APGM; Harvey Roland, PrGSec, Alan White, DPrGSec, DepGSwdB Jagdish Dhadialla, plus W Bro Mani Sharma and other London Mark Masons. The Mark PGM of Kent, RW Bro Archie Torrance, and the PGM of the Craft in West Kent, RW Bro Jonathan Winpenny were also in attendance accompanied by a very good attendance of Kent Mark Master Masons. It is safe to say that the Presentation of the Minibus and the Reception which followed went extremely well, and were enjoyed by everyone involved.
The morning started with a quick look round the facility and then a short address by RW Bro David Ashbolt and a response from the representative of the RMBI. Then came the Official Handover which was followed by an informal Buffet. Thank you to everyone who helped and attended and a huge “Thanks” to the Residents and Staff.
