Our Charitable Efforts
This page is in the process of being updated .....
Freemasonry is one of the biggest charitable organisations in the world!
Yeovil Freemasons, since it's origin in 1810, have given hundreds of thousands of pounds to many needy places and individuals.
Where there is a genuine need, we are there and ready to help. Indeed giving a charitable helping hand to a needy and good cause is one of the primary aims and goals of Freemasonry in general and Yeovil Freemasons in particular. Although our main concerns are for Yeovil and environs, some of our monies go to Somerset Provincial Charity account to be used within Somerset County. Some of our mony also goes to the United Grand Lodge of England to be help for national or international disaster relief.
We have given monies to local hospices, schools, cancer charities, Somerset farmers during the floods a few years ago.
... And so the work goes on... quietly and in the background... We never ask for monies outside Freemasonry but are always ready to support the needs external to our fraternity as well as internally.
