Over the past 4 years Fr. John Taylor (Worshipful Master of the Stella Maris Lodge 7279) has built up an extremely good relationship with the Islamic community in Margate and Cliftonville.
During our present ‘Lock Down’ situation John on behalf of Freemasonry and the Stella Maris Lodge has been working even harder. Each Thursday he extends the hand of friendship and charity in conjunction with ‘Quality Foods’ an Islamic shop in Northdown Road Cliftonville he distributes food bags to anyone who may need them. John has also recruited several of the ‘specialist’ food outlets to adopt and support the initiative.
The food bags contain the basics for a meal for a family of 4, especially during the period of Ramadan.
Any financial donations made through outlets in Northdown Road are forwarded for the direct purchase of food bags for distribution.
