Samaritans in Spain would like to offer a special thanks to The Mark Master Masons of Spain. Thanks to their support, we have been able to install a much needed new A/C unit in our Punta Prima shop; making it more comfortable for our volunteers and customers alike. Not a moment too soon with this August heatwave and the need to wear masks!
The money was raised by a Sing-a-Long where local entertainer, Jo-Jo received pledges in return for her singing specific numbers or doing shout-outs. The event was held via Facebook Live during lockdown and the total given to Spanish based causes from the Master Masons of Spain reached a whopping 2,928€.
Initially the Mark Master Masons pledged 900€ to Samaritans in Spain but when the total bill came to 1,068€, the District Grand Master R.W.Bro Barrie Roy Mansell, authorised the full amount to be paid from the District Charity Account.
The Assistant District Grand Master, W.Bro. Terry Porter along with the District Grand Secretary, W.Bro. Ian Crawford visited after the installation was completed to see the results and to thank Samaritans in Spain for all that they do to support those in crisis during these difficult times. They can be seen in the picture (standing under the new A/C unit) with Les Holloway, one of our Trustees and Sandra, one of our shop volunteers.
