PROVINCIAL GRAND LODGE OF ESSEX DONATION HELPS NCI SOUTHEND TOWARDS STATION REPLACEMENT

26th January 2020. The team at NCI Southend received a donation from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Essex to help towards replacing the station.

A cheque for £10,000 was presented to the station by the Deputy Grand Master, Paul Reeves, and Provincial Grand Secretary, Phil Lovelock and the photograph shows it being received by Station Manager, Rodney Hyne-Jones. “Whilst we are not quite there yet, this very generous donation, which is greatly appreciated, has gone some way towards achieving the necessary level of funding to proceed with the replacement of our lookout which is urgently needed”, said Rodney Hyne-Jones.

Paul Reeves and Phil Lovelock, were then given a guided tour of the station in operation and both appeared impressed with the valuable work carried out by NCI around our coasts.
