In 2012 East Kent Freemasons raised more than £600,000 for a wide range of national and local charities and other good causes. Please click here for details of these donations.
Nationally there are four central Masonic Charities that do good work, not just for Freemasons or their dependents, but for the wider community. One of these, the Freemasons’ Grand Charity, is dedicated to helping people in need and has donated over £100 million since 1980. It is always quick to provide help when national disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and floods occur in various parts of the world.
The Freemasons of East Kent have pledged to raise £3 million for this charity in a major appeal that ends in 2014.
