A message from the PGM
We now approach or second Anniversary of launching our 2021 Festival in aid if RMTGB. It is always a real privilege to be invited to support any of our Central Charities, but as this will be the final Festival Appeal in aid of RMTGB, it is indeed a great honour for the Province of Durham. From 2022 all Festivals will be in aid of The Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF).
I am absolutely amazed at the progress we have made in the first 20 months of our Appeal and the generosity of the Brethren throughout the Province is greatly admired. Above all it is the total commitment and hard work of our Charity Stewards that focusses our minds on how we can raise money for this excellent cause.
I extend my grateful thanks to all Charity Stewards for their continuing support in the work that they do. It is sometimes a very difficult task in encouraging Members to part with their money, but it is very rewarding to see how and where it is spent. May you all find great satisfaction in your endeavours.
Every year, we receive into our Province in excess of £100k, in support of the very deserving children we assist, many of whom have quite complicated lives.
Provincial Grand Master
