Kendal Lads and Girls Club benefit from generous Freemasons

On the 31st of October 2021, Keith Beaumont (APGM) and John Wrennall (Group Chairman) proudly handed over a donation of £2000 to the Kendal Lads and Girls Club. This donation will go towards maintaining the premises and activities that the young people in the club engage in, such as, The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, sports, art, music, and various educational workshops.

The Club was established in 1938 at Castle Street premises with 40 members ages between 14 and 18 years. In 1964, new purpose-built premises were constructed at Beezon Fields holding various activities including canoeing, cricket, athletics, table tennis, football, rifle shooting, cross country running and chess. Over the years the club has gone from strength to strength, reaching its 50th anniversary back in 2015.

The club is currently divided into youth club activities and a boxing club, both of which will greatly benefit from this £2000 donation. Both Keith and John witnessed the boxing club in action and appreciated the discipline, fitness and character building generated in young people.

Alan Varley, Treasurer and Trustee said:

May I thank the Province of Cumberland & Westmorland Freemasons for the kind and generous donation of £2000.00 to the KL & GC Kendal Lads and Girls Club’

The funding was raised as part of the Provincial Grand Masters match funding initiative, local freemasons supporting local charities.
