Flat Head Syndrome

Lodge Randolph No.776 was recently asked if they could find a way to support a young child in Leven who at eight months was suffering from a condition know as Flat Head Syndrome. Flat head syndrome is the name given to the condition when part of a baby's head becomes flattened due to continued pressure on one spot. ... Its most common form is 'positional plagiocephaly', which happens when a baby's head develops a flat area due to continued pressure on one side of their head.

In response to this plea for help the Lodge Secretary contacted the Provincial Grand Lodge of Fife and Kinross and asked for permission to circulate letters to the Lodges in the province asking for help to raise funds.

Not only did Provincial Grand Lodge grant permission but they also made a donation as did many of the Lodges throughout the province indeed donations are still coming in and to date £1760.00 has been raised. Lodge Randolph No.776 would like to thank all those Lodges and individuals who have helped raise this money and donations which are continuing to come in are still very much needed.

Another cheque has been donated taking the total donations thus far to £2,025.00 which should cover the price of the helmet. We have received a message from the family thanking all the Lodges and indivuduals who have donated to this very worthwhile cause:'

"My family and I would like to say a massive thank you for all the kind donations for Jackson's medical helmet. We are overwhelmed by the support Buckhaven lodge and all the Fife lodges that have donated.
Many thanks
