Arbroath Lodge Panmure 299 recently had a new stairlift installed to assist members up the steep stairs in its Hill Road Premises.

Member Graham Letford helped raise the funding by an on-line auction, and a sponsored cycle run during which he covered 30 miles until he reached his target of 299 miles - the same number as the lodge.

Many members of lodges up across the country were bought items from the on-line auction.

Graham recently handed over the cheque for £7000 which more than covers the cost and installation of the stairlift.
