Nautilus Lodge No. 4259 – Gold Award Presentation


W Bro Dave Hanson GStB, the East Area Festival Director and Nautilus Lodge VGO, had the very pleasant task at the January meeting of Nautilus Lodge No.4259 of presenting their Charity Steward, Ian Wardle, with his Gold pin to acknowledge that the lodge has reached 100% of their Durham 2021 Festival target.

Ian has done a fantastic job and has signed up 82% of the membership to the continuous giving scheme that is, by far, the most successful in the Province of Durham.

Dave then presented a framed certificate to the Lodge Worshipful Master, W Bro Les Adams, which will take pride of place at the Festive board.  Nautilus Lodge who meet in Queen Street, Sunderland is the first Lodge in Sunderland to reach the Gold Award. Dave thanked the brethren for their fantastic support to date and hoped it would continue.  He also congratulated them for having over 82% of the membership on continuous giving; that really is the easiest way to donate.
