$9,600 Raised for Local Charities

On Saturday the 3rd of March the Royal Haven Court of the Order of the Amaranth held a function in Nowra to raise money for local charities. They also presented cheques to the Maternity Unit of the Shoalhaven Hospital and the local Parkinsons Support Group.
The Order of the Amaranth is a fraternal organisation primarily for ladies and a few men. The Order originated in Sweden and impresses upon its members their duty to God, their Country and each other. There are Courts in many countries and visitations between them are encouraged. Each year a Court raises funds for charity as well as helping others in their local area.
Over the previous year Royal Haven has raised $5,000 for Charity at many fundraising events and meetings. Masonicare, the Freemasons Grand Charity, has chosen to support Royal Haven by supplementing Dollar for Dollar the money they have raised. We are very grateful that Masonicare has decided to support the Amaranth in this way.
Rosemary Aitkinson, who is the current Royal Matron of Royal Haven and Ian Newbery the Royal Patron, together with Brian MacKander and Peter Stemp on behalf of Masonicare, today presented cheques for $5,000 to Bev……………………………………… of the Shoalhaven Hospital Maternity Ward and for $4,600 to Di………………………………………… of the Nowra Parkinsons Support Group.
