Sir James McKay House - July 2015




Each year a Province within the local area is asked to host a family fun day and fund raising event for the Sir James McKay House in Edinburgh.

Sir James McKay House 001


Sir James McKay House is one of two Care Homes owned and administered by Grand Lodge of Scotland and can be found at 18 Ravelston Park in Edinburgh.

This year the Province of Midlothian have been asked to host the fund day and all Lodges within the Province have either made a commitment to run a stall, tombolo or other fun event, or have made a charitable donation towards the day.  There will even be the sound - which is very familiar at Sir James McKay House - of Motorbikes as The Widows Sons will be there on the day with their Harley Davidson display.

This fundraising is important to the residents at Sir James McKay House as any money raised goes directly to the house and can be used as required - perhaps for fun days out and trips away.

The Province of Midlothian would like to welcome all to the family fun day, hope you are able to support this venture and have a great day.


Sunday 26th July 2015 @ 2pm.
