2023 River Cruise

2016 08 13 bbq02On Saturday 19th August 2023 a group of Camberley Lodge members and friends gathered together for a short river Cruise on the "Lucy Fisher" a replica of a Victorian Paddle Steamer. on the River Thames from Runnymede. After an unpromising start, the weather cleared to bright sunshine and we enjoyed a relaxing cruise on the river, accompanied by an interesting commentary.

2023 08 19 Cruise2The cruise was organised by Worshipful Master Rick Comber who was accompanied by his wife Abi. After the tranquil cruise, we gathered together back at Runnymede for a happy picnic on the riverside. This was followed by a quiz, with questions compiled by our Worshipful Master. The event was enjoyed by all, including the several children present. As well as being great fun, the event was held to raise funds for the Worshipful Master's Charity MAN-UP which helps men with depression, suicidal thoughts, and mental health issues, through a network of volunteers.

2016 08 13 bbq03Several more events are planned in a full year of activities. We look forward to an "Old English Night" for members and guests, to be followed by a "White Table meeting and a Quiz night. The year will come to a great climax with a Ladies Festival in February at Camberley Cricket Club. All in aid of the same deserving charity.

Donation to Disability Initiative

2018 04 Installation

At the Camberley Lodge Ladies’ Festival in 2018,  Pam Barclay won the star prize of a week’s holiday in the villa  of Kevin McSorley and his wife Carmel  in Nerja Spain.  The Barclays decided to take their whole extended family the following year and had a great time.  They were so grateful that they felt that they would like to make a donation to Kevin and Carmel’s charity of choice – Disability Initiative.

We invited Hugh and Pam to present the cheque themselves but they wanted to do it “without any fuss,” so this was delegated!

The photographs show Lucy Brown Chief Executive of Disability Initiative, a Camberley based charity, with several individuals receiving DI’s invaluable support, together with W.Bro. David Matthews of Camberley Lodge who presented the cheque.

DI is an established charity that specialises in the provision of services to adults with complex physical disabilities and acquired brain injury.
