In addition to our solid approach to masonic rituals during our lodge meetings, we have a strong approach to our charitable activities. Most of our members donate to charity through our Charities Association and the Lodge, in general, receives interest from our various [long term] financial investments. These continue to generate a reasonable amount of income, but the low-interest rates have negatively affected the total received. All the money received is donated to charitable causes.
The following is a breakdown of the various donations made in the ten-year period between 2011 and 2021.
Masonic Donations £17,735.00
Non Masonic Donations £8,105.00
It should be pointed out that any donations made must take account of the individual brother’s personal and family circumstances, and there is no pressure to contribute anything. 10 pence from a poor man is more worthy than £10.00 from a rich man.
