There will be fundraising quiz on Friday 14 April at 7.30 in Lodge Fortrose, Kenneth
Street to support the Mountain View School for the Deaf in Malawi. The school provides
education for 150 pupils, about half of whom are orphans. Due to failing crops there
is a risk that parents will not be able to afford the tuition fees so the various
Lodges in Ross and Cromarty are undertaking fundraising with the aim of paying the
annual fees for all pupils for two years. The Lodges have previously supplied teaching
materials and equipment, teacher salaries and, following an outbreak of cholera in
2014 a solar powered water pump.
Ramsay McGhee, who with other representatives of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Ross
and Cromarty has visited the school a number of times, will give a talk about the
school and the difficulties faced by the pupils and staff.
The quiz will be for teams of four (£10 per team) and there will also be a raffle
with various prizes.
