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.

Charity - putting into practice what we teach

We are taught to practice ‘charity’ from an early age. The giving of money is an integral part of what it means to be a charitable and generous person.

Our members are called on to support many charities and this year our Grand Royal Matron’s charitable project is for the Garvin Institute of Medical Research especially for Neurone Science which has given her 22 extra years of life following a brain tumour.

Royal Victoria Court: We look forward to supporting H.L. Beverley’s chosen charity for this year - the Peninsula Palliative Care Unit in Frankston .

A donation of $1,000 was given by the members of Royal Victoria Court to the Junior Diabetes Foundation which was our outgoing Royal Matron H.L. Helen Wright’s project for 2011/2012

Endeavour Court: H.L. June’s chosen charity will be Bailey House which is a day centre for adults with an intellectual disability in the age group of 18 to 72.

All three are most worthwile charities whilst in the background we continue to support The Diabetes Amaranth Research Trust which last year Internationally donated in excess of $US 600,000.
