Zetland Lodge Bursaries

On Saturday 23th January 2016, Chairman of Freemasons Foundation Victoria Bro. Andre Clayton along with local Freemasons presented a number of bursaries to students from schools within the Zetland Lodge area.

This was the 10th year of funding student bursaries which originally was for all schools across the local area, including: Kyneton Primary, Our Lady of The Rosary Kyneton, Malmsbury, Tylden, Drummond, Langley, Redesdale Mia Mia, Woodend Primary, St. Andrews Woodend, St. Bridget's Gisborne, Newham Primary and Romsey Primary.

In order to maximise the effect, in recent years schools have selected on a rotational basis, allowing for six schools to participate from that list year each.

Over the years Zetland Lodge have donated over $200,000 though their own fundraising, by undertaking events such as barbecues at their local hardware store, and too with the assistance of Grand Lodge.

Bro. Brian Ward stated that it was “Not bad from a bunch of old blokes with funny aprons”. A statement which we absolutely agree with, not a bad effort at all!
