ImageFreemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values.

 

Freemasonry provides a structure to instil in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, respect, friendship and charity.

 

Image

Freemasonry provides the common foundation for friendships between its members, many of which will last a lifetime.

 

At the same time members

are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount.

 

 

Image

Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion, background or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.

 

Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

Freemasons practice charity and care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole – both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

 

The Masonic Charitable Foundation provides relief grants as well as donating to charitable projects and causes.

This is your opportunity to hear the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and support Wiltshire charities 

Wiltshire Freemasons are invited to a very special concert on

Sunday 24th July 2022.

 

The concert is titled OPEN TO THE SKIES and is being held in the grounds of Bowood House & Gardens, Calne by kind permission of the Marquis of Lansdowne. The event is supported by a number of Patrons including the Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, and Lady Lansdowne.

 

With a performer list headed by the superb Central Band Of The Royal Air Force, who will feature their very own singers, the RAF Squadronaires, the evening promises to be a musical extravaganza.  The band will also be joined by a nationally renowned Swindon choir – The Wessex, and Wiltshire soprano Matilda Wale.  It really will be an extra special evening.

 

Flypasts from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, a display by the RAF Falcons parachute team, and a superb firework display will only serve to make this an event not to be missed.

 

Included among the charities being supported by this event are three well known to Wiltshire Freemasons:

 

Julia’s House

Wiltshire Air Ambulance

Teddies For Loving Care

 

We would like Wiltshire Freemasons, their families, and friends to support this event by buying tickets to the concert.

 

In order to raise substantial funds for the three Wiltshire charities, and the five military charities, we need every bit of help possible to spread the word that OPEN TO THE SKIES is a great event to support in 2022. Please would you help us?
