Wiltshire Freemasons marked the Tercentenary of the formation of the First or Premier Grand Lodge by hosting a special concert in aid of Julia's House.
Linked to a fraternal visit from Zur alten Linde Lodge No 368 in Dortmund, Germany, the Tercentenary was celebrated with a weekend of specially organised events in Chippenham. These culminated in a Gala James Last Tribute Concert, featuring The Mike Smith Big Swing Band & Singers with guest artists Elektra Violin Duo. The concert was open to the public and raised £1,715 for Julia's House. Event organiser Jim Speed said: "It was an evening of up-tempo music by top-flight artists and a fitting end to a glorious celebration."
Ian Wadley, Wiltshire Fundraising Manager for Julia's House said: "We are hugely grateful to Jim and everybody at Wiltshire Freemasons for their generous, continued support."
