Charitable support of our fellow citizens is one of Freemasonry’s 3 core commitments and the challenge, as always, is where to help next?. As such, the requirement to support different causes are regularly examined and promoted within our ceremonies and our meetings.
It keeps each of us highly motivated to help others in a constructive and meaningful format, which usually translates to financial or physical (volunteering) support.
We support local, national & global causes as well as our own Masonic community. Our focus is to be a force for good by supporting charities to help the most disadvantaged in society. Below are some of the more recent Charitable causes that the Military Lodge has supported :
