Carpentaria District Freemason Jimmy Offer from Endeavour Lodge was recently recognised by Cancer Council Queensland for raising funds for their facilities in Cairns.

For many years without fail Jimmy and fellow Freemason Winston Jennings from Bentley Park Lodge have travelled around the Chillagoe area collecting old car batteries for recycling. Whatever funds they raised from extracting these precious metals have gone directly towards the Cancer Council’s Marylyn Mayo Lodge in Cairns – a home away from home for regional cancer patients receiving treatment in the city.

Congratulations to both Jimmy and Winston on their tireless efforts.

Every year for the past two decades Endeavour Lodge has sponsored two bursaries at Cooktown State School as their way of giving back to the community where their Lodge was originally founded in 1875.

Now based in Cairns, roughly four and a half hours south of Cooktown, Endeavour Lodge which has a travelling warrant, attempts to meet in its birthplace at least once a year to celebrate its foundation and to maintain its strong links with the community.

Endeavour Lodge representative Ian Jackson said it was great to be back in Cooktown to recognise two of the school’s most deserving students who each took home a certificate and $250 to put towards their education. 

“It was an absolute privilege to represent Endeavour Lodge and Freemasonry at the Cooktown State School awards night,” Ian said.

“These two students have actively participated in and contributed to a wide range of school activities whilst achieving a high standard in industry, reliability, initiative and sociability.”

“Some of the fundamental principles of Freemasonry are charity and to foster good citizenship and values within society, so it was tremendously rewarding to be allowed to represent the Lodge and justly reward these two young people for their efforts,” he said.

Endeavour Lodge is unique in that, while they are now based in Cairns, it continues to attract members from Cooktown, the birthplace of the Lodge.
