It was a pleasure to meet members of the Royal Order of Scotland Provincial Grand Lodge of Carrick and Annandale today in Freemasons’ Hall. The Provincial Grand Master, Robin Sutherland, presented a cheque in the sum of £1,000 towards the Make it a Million Appeal for Prostate Scotland and we are most grateful to all for this kind donation.
We were delighted to welcome members of the Grand Lodge of Scotland Clay Shooting Association to Freemasons’ Hall recently. The sum of £2,500 was kindly presented to the Grand Master Mason, representing monies which had been raised by the Association towards the Make it a Million appeal for Prostate Scotland. Also presented was a gift to commemorate the 2nd International Masonic Clay Shooting Championship which was held in Scotland in October 2021.
Many thanks to the Association and to all Lodges, Provinces, Districts and individual Brethren who have already supported, and are continuing to support, the Make it a Million initiative. The total sum raised has climbed to more than £873,000 and we greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts to reach the million pound target.
We are getting closer to achieving our Million Pound target every day for Prostrate Scotland.
To help us further achieve this target, Bro. John Muir is now able to provide a Grand Lodge of Scotland, Prostate Scotland, Limited Edition, 45mm diameter, Individually Numbered, Boxed Coin. Priced at £20.00 plus 1st class recorded delivery postage.

A presentation to Prostate Scotland this morning at the Maggie’s Centre in Inverness.
£34,500 was raised through an event that never took place – it was sponsorship from the Forth Rail Bridge Abseil which was cancelled due to Covid. The cheque is being received on behalf of Prostate Scotland by Brian Corr, NHS Highland’s Urology Clinical Nurse Specialist.
That takes the total giving to Prostate Scotland to £625,000.
