A great initiative by King Edwin Chapter to encourage Chapter visiting and charity support receives the approval of the PG Superintendent (PGM)
At King Edwin Chapters 150th celebration a giant teddy bear dressed in full Royal Arch Regalia
was raffled, the idea being that who ever won it could then raffle it in their Chapter and so raise money for TLC or the charity of their choice.
We felt this would encourage Companions to visit and also raise funds ( The Teddy did have a bottle in his hand for the holder of the winning ticket ).
A book was also presented to record his Journey through the Province and the monies raised.
The bear started it travels at St Edwin Chapter (Malton), then Old Globe Chapter (Scarborough), Priory Chapter (Guisborough) now on the way to Alcuin Chapter (York)
