East Kent Freemasons Charity

2023 Annual PGM’s Awards

The Annual Cornwallis East Kent Freemasons, Charity Awards Presentation, was held this year on the 25th February, at St Georges Centre, Pembroke Road, Chatham.

The awards presentation was very well attended, and featured Charities who had benefitted from grants during the past year. The event also enabled each charity to give a short presentation on what they do, how the grants are used, and how they help people in their communities and beyond.

On the conclusion of the Presentations, a light buffet was enjoyed by all, and charities were able to talk to members of the province, and each other. Indeed, some charities are now working together to help local people in their areas of East Kent.

The Provincial Grand Master and Peter Rodd, both thanked everyone for attending, and also to the charities for their hard work. They also thanked the Freemasons of East Kent, who without their donations and contributions, the event and help would not have been possible.

the Charity

Our aim is to invest in a brighter future, by assisting the vulnerable, and funding opportunities for the disadvantaged in our communities.
Support is available to community groups and individuals.
In the case of community groups, we will consider requests from organisations throughout the whole of East Kent: from Gravesend, through Medway and Canterbury to Thanet; from Paddock Wood, through Maidstone and Ashford to Dover; and from West Malling, through Tenterden, Dymchurch, and along the channel coastline to Folkestone.
As far as individuals in need are concerned, we will consider applications from, or on behalf of anyone living anywhere in the County of Kent.
