Curry Night Extravaganza in Thundersley raises £2,297 for Charity

Provincial Grand Stewards from all over Essex have their own fun-filled event

In Essex Freemasonry, the Provincial Grand Stewards make all the difference to the success of so many Masonic formal events but on 23rd February 2024 at the Tandoori Parlour in Thundersley they held their own successful informal event.

A ‘Curry Night Extravaganza’ brought together more than 110 from all over Essex, including members, family and friends for a fantastic fun-filled evening with good food and fundraising. Paul Williams, one of the organisers said “The conversations and laughter that filled the room exemplified the strong sense of friendship and community there is in Freemasonry”

Entertainment was plentiful, with some unexpected karaoke singing talents uncovered and a DJ who kept the mood upbeat all evening.  The event was also a significant success in terms of charity with £2,297.70 being raised for the Provincial Stewards Charity Fund. Paul added “This highlights the commitment of Freemasons to support those in need and make a real difference. Everyone left with a sense of fulfilment, knowing that their contributions would help make a positive impact in the community.”
