W Bro Tim Kirkham, the IPM of Astral Lodge No 3841 is seen presenting a cheque on the 15th December 2017 for £750 from the New Provincial Benevolent Fund to Mrs Margo Thomas and Mrs Brenda from the Grimsby 16+ Group.
The Grimsby 16+ Group were formed in 1995 by a group of parents with older children/young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities to provide them with a social life. The group meet on a Thursday evening at the Grimsby Institute where they partake in activities such as pool, cooking, bingo, crafts, dancing, games and outside trips for meals and bowling. They also enjoy an annual residential holiday.
The group is run by volunteers and is completely self funding.
