The Provincial Grand Primo for 2017 Bro Raymond Brannon KOM held his Presentation Dinner Evening at Sotirio's Restaurant in Greatstone on the Romney Marsh on Saturday 19th March 2018.

Bro Raymond decided that his chosen charity during his year as Provincial Grand Primo 2017 was to be "Cure Parkinson Trust" a charity close to his heart, for he himself sadly suffers from this awful illness that effects so many. Throughout 2017  events have taken place supported by members of the Province and their families  to raise money for this worthwhile appeal.

After a wonderful meal at Sotirio's Restaurant, Bro Raymond presented Mr Simon Read and Mrs Alice Read our guests for the evening with a cheque for £2000. 56 pence to Cure Parkinson's Trust.

Mr Simon Read of Cure Parkinson's Trust thanked Bro Raymond and all those that had supported the appeal for their wonderful efforts and went on to explain how these donations go into supporting the efforts of those working tirelessly for a cure to this awful illness.

               Mr Trevor Sayer SERV  

       Events & Fund Raising Coordinator

The Provincial Grand Primo for 2015 Bro James (Jim) Connor ROH decided at the start of his year that his chosen charity for the year would be SERV (Kent Blood Runners) The charity is run by volunteers, who on their own motor bikes or cars supply the Kent hospitals and the Kent Air Ambulance with blood, blood products, samples, equipment and medicines.

The appeal over the year had donations from lodges of the Province and Provincial Grand Lodge. It also had members doing events to raise money such as a Bungy Jump,  the selling of old RAOB jewels and the selling of football cards but to name a few.

On Friday 26th February 2016, the William Fagg Lodge as the host lodge for the P.G.Primo, arranged a Presentation Evening at Sotarios restaurant in Greatstone and Mr Arthur Godden Chairman, and Mr Trevor Sayer, Events Coordinator, of the charity Kent SERV were invited along. The Provincial Grand Primo for 2015 Bro Jim Connor ROH at the event handed over a cheque for £2000 to the two members of SERV (the Kent Blood Runners) which ended a very successful year for Bro Jim as Provincial Grand Primo.  

In return Mr Trevor Sayer,  Events & Fund Raising Coordinator for Kent SERV,  thanked the Provincial Grand Primo and members of the Province for the wonderful gift of the cheque for £2000. He also gave a very good talk on the work the volunteers of SERV carry out, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week and the support they give to not only the Kent Hospitals but also to the Kent Air Ambulance, stating that Kent were the first to carry out this support to the Air Ambulance service.

Mr Arthur Godden as Chairman of Kent SERV then gave a talk on the role of the Air Ambulance and how SERV volunteers give their support into making sure blood is available at all times for the Air Ambulance to carry, a service which only a few years ago was not available.  He also mention the cooperation that has to go into making sure there is a fully recorded audit trail right back to the donor.
