Charitable Work

The order has two trust funds, which are registered charities, and we have two homes for holidays or shared living

We raise large amounts of money for charity by holding social events, and these also give members the opportunity to get to know each other on an informal basis. At our Centenary celebrations in 2008, half a million pounds was presented to two cancer charities. Where each Worshipful Master selects during her year of office a charity particularly dear to her. The money is shared between the charity and the Order's Charities at Grand Lodge.
