Tuning in to Charity: Christmas Super Raffle

by Peter Wells

In the spirit of giving and festive cheer, Wokingham Lodge 8691 celebrated its 15th consecutive year of spreading joy with its annual Christmas Super Raffle. The hallmark of this cherished event is the star prize – a television, setting the stage for an evening filled with excitement and camaraderie.

For over a decade and a half, Wokingham Lodge 8691 has made a tradition of raising money for charity through the Christmas Super Raffle. This year was no exception, as brethren gathered on Thursday, December 7th, to partake in the festivities and, most importantly, contribute to charitable causes.

The highlight of the evening was, undoubtedly, the coveted star prize – a state-of-the-art television. Symbolizing the Lodge’s commitment to keeping traditions alive while embracing modernity, the TV prize has become a beacon of excitement for all attendees.

While the television might have stolen the spotlight, the Christmas Super Raffle offered an impressive array of prizes to cater to varied interests. From power tools that spark the creative minds of DIY enthusiasts to fishing rods for those who find solace by the water, and a hamper filled with festive delights, there was something for everyone.

The meeting took on added significance as Bro Dan Figuiredo was initiated into the Wokingham Lodge 8691. The initiation, conducted by the Worshipful Master W Bro Trevor Passby, was a poignant moment that resonated with the Lodge’s commitment to growth.

Adding a touch of spectacle to the evening was the presence of nearly 80 swaying Masons forming the initiate’s chain. A fantastic sight that defines Wokingham Lodge 8691.

A surprise visitor arrived, RW Anthony Howlett-Bolton OBE, the Provincial Grand Master for Berkshire, who having heard of the success of the Christmas raffle, decided to attend unannounced and certainly surprised the inner guard.

In the 15th year of the Christmas Super Raffle, Wokingham Lodge 8691 tuned into the spirit of charity, ensuring that the festive season is not only about receiving but also about giving back to the community that surrounds them.
