MOVEMBER & SEAVIEW FREEMASONS LODGE
One of the aims of Freemason Lodges is to support charity. Seaview Freemasons Lodge (www.seaviewfreemasonslodge.org) situated in Doubleview has forty six members who participate in fundraising activities for charity. Funds are raised through sausage sizzles, raffles and donations.
With the assistance of some matching contributions from the Grand Lodge of Western Australia, Seaview Freemasons Lodge has contributed about $16,500 over the last two and a half years to charity. Beneficiaries have been Princess Margaret Hospital ($11,600) Wheelchairs for Kids ($2000), Scarborough Surf Life Saving Club ($2800), Newman SES ($500) and Movember ($1000).
Movember is a global charity committed to men’s health. It is about raising funds in support of men’s health issues focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. The shaving of moustaches (The Mo) from several of our members took place on the 26 November in support of this cause. The moustaches had been grown over the last few months. The shaving took place at Joe- n- Co Hairdressing Shop at 20 Duncraig Shopping Centre. It is anticipated that approximately $2000 dollars will be collected through this activity and its associated sponsor-ship this year.
