RAOB hands over thousands to help the Royal Cornwall Hospital’s Sunrise appeal

MEMBERS of the West Cornwall Provincial Grand Lodge of the Royal Antediluviaon Order of Buffaloes (RAOB) have handed over £4,396.59 to the Royal Cornwall Hospital’s Sunrise Appeal. The West Cornwall Province incorporates 12 lodges, including those in Penryn, Falmouth, Truro, Redruth, Camborne, St Ives, Penzance and one in St Just. Lodges ran raffles to raise money and donated 132 prizes for a raffle run by Robin Harris, Provincial Grand Primo 2014, a member of the Sur Lineal Jacobs Lodge which meets at the Boslowick Inn in Falmouth. Mr Harris also spent a day at the Asda supermarket in Penryn when he raised an additional £500 towards the appeal. Penryn community bingo also ran several raffles on his behalf as he is their caller. “Big thanks should go to my lodge, the Sir Lineal Jacobs, There are only seven members but between them they paid all my expenses for the year and donated many prizes for my end of the year draw,” said Mr Harris. Mr Harris, accompanied by several members of the West Cornwall Provincial Grand Lodge, presented the cheque to Tony Hill, representing the Sunrise Appeal.
