charity-moneyCharity is one of the fundamentals of Freemasonry. It is in the heart of every Mason and instilled by our values of integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness.

From its inception, Freemasons have always been concerned with orphans and the sick, and in more modern times, Masons support many local and national charities.

Nationally, our efforts are channelled through four main charity organisations shown on the right, click the charity’s name to find out more.

Locally, Saint James Lodge and the Province of Lincolnshire support can be specifically targeted to smaller local causes.
