SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY IN 2021
It is a long tradition of Preston Guild Lodge to support our local charities with donations at this time of year. This year, the members were delighted to share £2600 between:
Preston Street Pastors
Barnardo’s Young Carers Scheme
Derian House Children’s Hospice
George Barton Trust Motor Neurone Disease Research
Alzheimer’s Society, Preston Branch
The Walnut Group Prostate Cancer Support, Preston
Rosemere Cancer Foundation
Grimsargh Wetland Trust.
As part of the distribution of the donations, a team of Preston Guild Lodge members pitched up to help the volunteers of the Grimsargh Wetland Trust as well as deliver their cheque for £300.
Grimsargh Wetlands Trust is a fairly new nature conservation site. Set up in 2017, the Trust is responsible for promoting the conservation, protection and improvement of the nature reserve. It is up of three decommissioned reservoirs which used to provide water for the local community and industry. Grimsargh Wetlands’ is made up of three main habitats, The Mere, The Island Lake and The Fen, which provide homes for a stunning range of wildlife at a time of encroaching urbanism.
Preston Street Pastors also attended to receive their contribution from not only the lodge, but an additional donation from the Bellisama Chapter of the Rose Croix.
