About > Charity
As Freemasons we know, that charity forms a principal virtue of our Order and one of our main objectives is to make significant donations to various Non-Masonic and Masonic charities. To achieve this, funds are raised by individual members who organise a variety of different activities such as golf days, bowls days, social functions - anything to raise a few pounds. The funds raised by the Lodge for charitable purposes are then use in twp ways.
- Some are forwarded on to to the Province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight to be administered by the Cabinet, a committee comprising members of provincial Grand Lodge appointed in terms of the District’s by-laws. The Committee ensures there is good governance regarding the allocation of charitable donations.
- The Lodge donates up to 50% of monies raised each year to non-Masonic giving.
