The Association of Friends at the ‘Court’
Like all Masonic Homes ‘The Court’ has a thriving Association of Friends and the members play a large part in raising funds to provide for the extra facilities that the residents would not otherwise receive.
The ‘Friends’ directly organise and support many events during the year and would welcome additional help in the form of patronage and, for those with time to spare, help with the running of events. Visitors to support the various events would also be warmly welcomed. A diary of ‘Friends’ events is shown below.
The residents enjoy talking to ‘The Friends’ and working in conjunction with the staff for the benefit of the residents is an immensely rewarding and satisfying experience.
More information can be downloaded about ‘The Friends’, together with application forms for individual or corporate membership (eg Lodges and Chapters).
