The COVID-19 Community Fund, which is managed by the MCF (the Freemasons’ Charity) has reached £500k – a fantastic achievement and testament to the charitable nature of Freemasons
With this in mind, the United Grand Lodge of England are helping launch a new initiative, #TimetoText, which is to encourage people to donate £5 to the Fund as we begin the push to £1 million.
The document below, from UGLE, highlights just some of the national Covid-19 related achievements. In the Province of Somerset, we are particularly proud of the following …
