The Griffith Pioneers Trust Fund was set up by Stuart and Margaret McWilliam on 19 October 2012,to benefit one beneficiary, The Pioneers Lodge. All donations to the fund must remain in the fund but the income earned by the investment will be available to continually purchase and upgrade capital equipment for Pioneers Lodge.
