One of the members of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, Dame​ Edina Balogh OLJ​, ​ recently visited Cambodia where she met many people living in poverty with disabilities.  She was able to offer both donations and humanitarian help on behalf of the Order, which was greatly appreciated.

Dame Ros Newton generously opened her home in January to host a fund-raising coffee morning in aid of arthritis research.

Some 25 Order members and friends gathered in her Marchmont flat to enjoy an array of edible delights, and catch up with friend old and new.   Ros and a minor army of friends prepared for the day by making marmalade, chutney, jam, biscuits and cakes – all for sale as well as books, CDs,  handmade cards and various small gifts.
