However, beyond the merriment, the heart of this festival was its altruistic purpose. All profits generated from the sale of goods at the various market stalls, as well as generous donations from attendees, were earmarked to support the United Cerebral Palsy Association of SA.

This vital organization provides invaluable services to individuals living with cerebral palsy (CP).

Representatives from the United Cerebral Palsy Association of SA were on-site to offer guidance and share crucial information about the support they offer to CP patients.

Attendees had the opportunity to contribute monetary donations through specially designated drop boxes, further demonstrating their commitment to this important cause.

In a heartfelt expression of gratitude, John Flatcher-Coxen, an Irish mason, extended his thanks to everyone who rallied behind this noble initiative.

He gave special recognition to Malcome Engles and the Benoni High School Pipe Band for their outstanding contributions to the masonic parade.

Flatcher-Coxen also conveyed his appreciation to the Boksburg Advertiser for their presence at the Heritage Day festival.

Their photographs captured the essence of the event and showcased the spirit of unity and charity that prevailed throughout the day.

Furthermore, he lauded the dedicated efforts of EMPD's Superintendent Marius Lubber-Lowe and Constable Monique Jansen, emphasizing the invaluable role played by the Boksburg metro police in ensuring the event's overall success.

Among the festival's delighted attendees were the Smith family from Sunward Park. Isabel Smith, 84, and her husband Billy, also 84, celebrated their remarkable 61-year-long marriage at the event.

The Smith family had also attended the previous festival and commended the organizers for once again creating a delightful and memorable experience.

They reveled in the pleasant weather, the abundance of enjoyable activities, and the presence of warm-hearted individuals who came together in the spirit of unity and philanthropy.

As the sun set on this day of celebration and giving, the Masonic Heritage Festival proved to be not only a source of joy but also a beacon of hope for those battling cerebral palsy, thanks to the unwavering support of the community and the Freemasons of Tirmochree Lodge.
