On Tuesday 13 August, Staffordshire PGM, John Lockley, officially launched a massive advertising campaign to highlight the MCF’s support for local and national charities across England and Wales.
The MCF’s message can now be seen on the side of an articulated lorry owned by Staffordshire freemason, Danny Poole – who owns a specialist chilled food distribution and transport business based in Stoke on Trent.
The lorry – carrying MCF branding and the message ‘Charity for All’ – has now been launched onto the roads of the UK and Europe, in particular England, France, Germany and Belgium.
The idea was generated by Danny and his wife Jackie, who approached the Staffordshire MCF Representative Andrew Tomblin – generously offering a lorry to help spread the word about the MCF’s work. Andrew then worked closely with the MCF to create a design and bring it to life.
The Staffordshire Provincial Team consisting of John Lockley PGM Selwyn Burton Provincial Communications Officer, Neal Fantarow Media Officer, John Skellern Provincial Grand Charity Steward and Andrew Tomblin waited in eager anticipation at Andrew’s lubricating oil factory, Thames, for the arrival of the vehicle.
John Lockley said: “This is the only vehicle in the country to carry the message that ’freemasonry cares’. Many thanks to Danny and Jackie for their great idea and for allowing the use of this magnificent vehicle to help Staffordshire to promote the Masonic Charitable Foundation, nationally and internationally.”
