On reaching his 70th birthday in November, Martyn Kiy, the current Worshipful Master of the Guildford Lodge No. 5443 decided that rather than having birthday cards and gifts to celebrate the occasion, he would host a private party and ask for donations which he could then pass on to Challengers on behalf of his Guildford Lodge.
The party was held at the Lake House Restaurant at Gold Valley Lakes in Aldershot and was attended by around 75 invited guests including fellow masons, close friends and family members.
It was a very successful evening with excellent food and live music, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
In total an amount of £1,170 was collected and the photograph shows Martyn presenting the cheque to Cader McPhail, the Community and Challenge Events Manager for Challengers at their Stoke Park headquarters in Guildford.
