The festival celebrates one of the corner stones of Freemasonry, charity, the objective is to raise £1.5 million in aid of the Masonic Charitable foundation – MCF.
The MCF links the work of both the Almoner and the Charity Steward, supporting Masons and their families in their time of need. Sometimes this may be financial support, but is often the MCF linking those in distress with existing charities and support organisations who can offer specific assistance.
The MCF also offers support to local and national charities by providing grants and helping to build associations as well as raising the profile of Masonry.
As we have now completed 2022 and all donations have been accounted for, we have pleasure in disclosing the 2021 report for the Provincial Grand Lodge Of Derbyshire.
