Charity - one of the fundamental principles of Freemasonry
Posted on 13th July 2023 at 10:38
Order of Women Freemasons' Lodges around the country have recently been having fun whilst raising money for their chosen charities. Each year the Master of each Lodge can choose a charity of her choice to raise money for – quite often this is a charity close to her heart or a local charity in her area. Members of all ages and backgrounds, often along with friends and family, attend these events which also provide opportunities to strength and make long-life friendships. Just some of the fundraising events in June have included:
Members of the Isle of Wight Lodge were busy arranging a number of charity fundraising events. They, along with family and friends, enjoyed fun and friendship at a ploughman’s lunch and coffee morning. Both events raised fabulous amounts for charity.
Further north in Luton members of the Order’s Luton lodge had a great time with friends old and new at a barbeque organised by the Master of the Lodge and her husband. They turned their garden into happy memories of the Jubilee and Coronation. Through the generosity of everyone who attended a wonderful amount was raised for charity.
To raise money for their chosen charity Faversham Abbey Lodge in Kent hosted an afternoon cream tea - scones, strawberry jam, cream and cakes were in abundance whilst members of all the OWF Norfolk and Suffolk Lodges joined together to raise money for their charities at a joint Sunday luncheon. Again - all raising money for charity.
