Assistant Provincial Grand Master David Winder, who heads the charity team commented: “I’m delighted that members of the team have received these well-deserved appointments and promotions.  As we move into the MCF 2021 Festival, the charity team are rising magnificently to the challenge before them and I know that this kind of recognition will inspire all of our colleagues to keep up the momentum over the coming four years.” He continued: “It’s well worth remembering that these honours are awarded not just in recognition of the service that has been given but are bestowed also in anticipation of future efforts.”

The charity team are always looking for brethren to join them and to assist in a role that is at the very heart of Freemasonry.  If you feel you could be of assistance, then please contact your group charity steward.
