The charity team structure comprises the Provincial Grand Charity Steward, supported by eight regional charity stewards who form the executive committee.
The regional charity stewards are in turn supported by 23 group charity stewards.There is a GCS for each of the 22 Groups in the Province, with 2 GCS’s in the Liverpool Group.
Each regional charity steward is an ex-officio member of the respective group executive and is expected to attend at least one of the two group executive meetings held by those groups. He also provides direct support to the group and more particularly, individual lodge and chapter charity stewards.
In addition to providing support to the respective group charity stewards, he will seek to identify projects which might benefit from a degree of co-ordinated giving between lodges, chapters and groups.
He should, work to establish a strategic overview of the patterns of giving in his area, along with the causes, which may benefit from our assistance.
He should become an authoritative advisor on fundraising and its objects, both Masonic and non-Masonic for the group charity stewards, lodges and chapters who may consult him. He will be expected to liaise with and keep informed the Assistant Provincial Grand Masters and group chairmen in his area.
The RCS will also be expected to play a leading role in any Provincial charity projects.
Each regional charity steward generally covers three groups except in the case of the Liverpool Group, which has a dedicated RCS.
Furness and South Lakeland, Lancaster and Preston Groups.
North Fylde, South Fylde and Blackpool Groups.
Leyland, Southport, Ormskirk & Bootle Groups.
Wigan, Leigh and Chorley Groups.
South East Group, Warrington & District, Eccles Groups
