The Provincial Charity Committee
Assistant Provincial Grand Master Peter Rodd has executive responsibility for East Kent Freemasons’ charity. He is supported, for Lodges, by the Provincial Grand Charity Steward and, for Chapters, by the Provincial Grand Chapter Charity Steward. In turn they are supported by Area Representatives on the Provincial Charity Committee (see below for details).
The committee members are the first point of call for Lodge and Chapter Charity Stewards, Brethren and Companions when seeking information or assistance.
The Provincial Charity Committee organises a number of Provincial charity events on a regular basis and will also support Lodges, Chapters, Brethren and Companions who organise other charity events.
Charity Stewards have available to them a Charity Stewards’ Handbook to which to refer for assistance, information and support. Click here to download a copy.
