”A Quest for More!” – Quest Lodge No. 7102 Fundraising Event

”A Quest for More!”

The Haley Sisters proved to be a big hit at Seaham on Saturday 22nd April 2017. ‘They were dancing in the aisles’ after Jo-Ann and Becky Haley, who are recognised as one of the most unique acts in their profession, performed their limitless genres of country music to the audience gathered at Seaham Masonic hall. Recently they have been touring extensively with Nathan Carter Ireland’s No.1 Country Singer, on May the 28th of this year, they are performing together at the London Palladium!

Ticket sales were in excess of ninety for the night, organised by Andrew Knapper, Ray Taylor and Raine Gregson from Quest Lodge. This along with the help from the raffle on the night, there was over £700 raised, which will go towards their Durham 2021 Festival target in aid of the Royal Masonic Trust for Boys & Girls.
