Grand Charity Donates £30,000 to Cumbria
The Freemasons’ Grand Charity has authorised an emergency grant of £25,000 to support relief efforts in Cumbria, following storms and heavy rains which hit the North West of England in December.
A further £5,000 has also been donated directly to the Provincial Grand Master’s Benevolence Fund. This will go towards helping masons and non-masons affected by the flooding in the Province of Cumberland and Westmoreland.
Laura Chapman, Chief Executive of The Freemasons’ Grand Charity, said: “The adverse weather in Cumbria has plunged individuals and families into particularly horrendous circumstances. It’s important that we do what we can to support these communities and minimise any potentially long term devastating effects.”
