The training presentations to Cabinet members, group chairmen, representing officers, regional charity stewards, group charity stewards, lodge and chapter charity stewards and festival representatives has been completed.
The next and most important phase is for lodge and chapter charity stewards to brief their members about the work the Masonic Charitable Foundation does and the need to support the MCF during our four year West Lancashire Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival.
In support of this task a video has been produced CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT with the Festival President Tony Harrison and Festival Vice President David Winder presenting a shortened presentation for brethren to watch and find out more about the West Lancashire Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival.
One of the little-known facts about the MCF which over-arches the work of the four national Masonic charities: The Grand Charity, The Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, The Masonic Samaritan Fund and The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution, is that brethren in our own Province and their dependants have received over £6,500,000 from the national charities since the end of the 2010 Festival.
The success of the 2021 Festival depends on all of our lodge and chapter charity stewards and most importantly the brethren of our Province who have always put service before self in support of those in need and those less fortunate than ourselves.
There are clearly 6,500,000 very good reasons for brethren to give support to our own Masons, widows and dependants who are in need, by becoming a Patron of the West Lancashire Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival.
All brethren will receive a Stewards’ Jewel at the level of patronage they achieve.
