Its often said the Charity resides in the heart of every Freemason and its true that on a national basis we donate large sums of money to worthy causes in this Country and abroad, but it might surprise people to know that all the money we raise comes from our own pockets and we don’t collect money from the outside community. Every penny we raise goes direct to needy causes and we don’t charge administration fees. Individual Freemasons donate what they can afford without causing hardship for their families or themselves and this is a private matter for them. We have some members able to donate more than others but no-one judges anyone else and even of its just a couple of pounds on the Lodge raffle it all counts, you certainly don’t have to be wealthy to be a Freemason.
We’re concerned with the character of the man, not the contents of his wallet!
