It was back to School recently for E Comp Bill Chippendale, MEZ of Chapter of Faith & Hope No 4772; in this case a very special school. E Comp Bill returned to the Braidwood Trust School for the Deaf where 20 years ago he had been Headteacher to present a cheque for £400. Present Headteacher Mrs Karen Saywood was delighted to receive it.
As can be seen from the photograph E Comp Bill was pleased to put his ‘signing’ capabilities to good use when doing this, once learnt never forgotten.
The cheque was presented at the School’s Awards Presentation and will be used to transport students to the Wyndley Swimming Baths in Sutton Coldfield for lessons.
The donation represented one of the Chapter’s charity collections and was augmented with support from the Chapters’ Charity-Giving Support Scheme and the Provincial Grand Chapter of Warwickshire Benevolent Fund.
All Chapters are encouraged to apply for support from the Scheme so as to enhance local giving. This provides a great opportunity to make a real and positive impact in our local communities.
