The Forget Me Not Trust is making a huge difference across Manchester. During this difficult time the people of Manchester who are in need of support are in isolation and so they become totally dependent on friends and family members bringing them supplies of food and other essentials.
For those with no family to assist them it can be a very scary situation. In addition, across the city food banks are also in need of supplies as the demand grows and they are crying out for donations to help them meet the needs of the more vulnerable within the community.
That’s where Ezra McGowan, member of Hand and Heart Lodge No 4109 that meet at Urmston Freemasons’ Hall comes in. As creator of the charity ‘The Forget Me Not Trust’, Ezra has been delivering food and supplies to those in isolation since the COVID-19 pandemic began. He has become a lifeline to many who are not able to shop for themselves.
After suffering with the coronavirus himself, Ezra has now fully recovered and is straight back out on the road again delivering tons in weight of food supplies to local food banks who will now be distributing that food across Manchester.
Ezra, being a proud Freemason, and backed by West Lancashire Freemasons, is also keeping a close eye on the community by being in contact with those in isolation on the telephone or via the internet, making sure residents are not only looked after but also have some company when feeling lonely.
