Philip Bullock says 'Thank You'


One of the many things I am enormously proud of, is the strap line devised by our communication team and used on the banner behind me , ‘charity it’s in a freemasons DNA’.  


For me it encapsulates the very essence of what we do in the community and identifies the Freemason as being a man who cares about his family, friends, fellow Freemasons; but above all it speaks of the man who recognises an obligation to be ‘good to all men’, to make a contribution  to his society and to support those  who work tirelessly to make a difference.

Having a charity presentation evening is an excellent way to project a positive image of Freemasonry as a force for good in the community, and we welcome you to this charity evening.

It is also an opportunity for the many charities who receive donations from Freemason’s Lodges to meet the influencers behind the decision to  support the work they do.  In Freemasonry the person who acts as the intermediary between the charity and the Lodge is  the Charity Steward.  

Finally, it is also the perfect way for Lodge members and particularly Charity Stewards to meet different charities and to learn more about the incredible work performed throughout the county.
