Traditionally, we donated a consignment to the Chester Le Street Food-bank this year, thanks to a raffle held during the Filipino Christmas Part at Bede Lodge Club Durham on 22nd December 2018 which raised £85.00. We split this into two, the first for Christmas Eve of £45 and the second for £40 on 2nd January 2019. The donation was entered under Chris Blakey, the entertainment and son of the Chairman of the Durham Centre for Theosophical Studies and under the Theosophical Order of Service. The picture of Jim and Babs below shows a previous donation worth £50 in December 2016 and equal in amount to December 2017. It's amazing how far your money will stretch for a worthwhile cause.
Benefits of Membership -
Joining the Theosophical Society is more than just becoming a member of an organization; it is an opportunity to help bring spiritual light into the world, through self-growth and group work; and joining with the nucleus of universal brotherhood that has been established by members throughout the world. A genuine commitment to brotherhood, which is the first object of the Society, is the mark of a truly spiritual person.
