The Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. David Hagger opened up his garden on the 4th of August 2019, as over 270 guests arrived for a fun day to raise money for the Leicestershire & Rutland 2022 Festival appeal.
With a team of helpers assisting with the setup of the marquees, organising the car parking, serving refreshments, and ensuring that the day ran smoothly, the Provincial Grand Master welcomed all before introducing the music and entertainment to the growing crowds.
An excellent buffet was served, accompanied by a full bar, and a chance to win a host of prizes in a raffle which was drawn later in the day.
The rain clouds kept off for most of the day, as the band enticed people to get up and dance and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. The event raised an incredible £7,263 for the 2022 Festival.
The Provincial Grand Master said: “My special thanks go to all the Brethren and their ladies who helped in whatever capacity on the day. Without your attendance and their assistance we could not have achieved this result.”
