Victory Marine Lodge entered a team into the 2021 Essex 500 Ride Challenge with Paul Beecham and Ian Stevenson completing a total of 759 miles between Monday 25th and Sunday 31st January (during their permitted daily exercise during Covid restrictions).

The week saw some truly monumental cycling efforts across the Province as challengers battled it out to achieve the highest average mileage.

The winners, Benfleet Lodge 3798 had a £500 donation made on their behalf to The Priest Foundation.

The Priest Foundation works to improve the lives of people with mental health issues in Essex, a great cause that we all support.

Victory Marine Lodge Digital Relief Chest L6160

The Lodge is pleased to be able to provide the digital assets for our L6160 – Victory Marine Lodge Relief Chest, provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF). The assets are unique to our Chest and allow donations to be made quickly and easily using a QR code via a mobile phone or tablet and via a unique URL via the internet. Their use will reduce cash handling and also save our Treasurer a considerable amount of administrative work with all funds donated immediately and electronically attributed to our Chest.

The Relief Chest envelopes will continue to be available at Lodge meetings for those who prefer the traditional method of donating and whichever method you chose, please remember to add gift aid if you are able.

Our Charity Steward will continue to report in Open Lodge on the status of our Relief Chest each year following receipt of our annual statement from the MCF so that you can decide how the money raised should be distributed.

The assets included are:
