In addition to the many social activities experienced by members, Freemasons raise considerable funds for charity and provide millions of pounds to national and international charitable causes in addition to helping their own members in time of need.
The Grand Charity is second only to the National Lottery in terms of monetary donations to worthy causes which include, amongst others, Medical Research, Disaster Relief, Hospice Grants and Youth Opportunities.
