Devonshire 2023 Festival

E0165 Donate to this Festival

LAUNCH: JANUARY 2018

FESTIVAL EVENT: 2023

It is with the greatest of pride and pleasure that we announce the launch in January 2018 of the Devonshire 2023 Festival for the benefit of the Masonic Charitable Foundation.

Freemasons can make a donation to the 2023 Festival by direct debit, one off payment, credit card payment and by text donation. Every donation will be credited to you personally and will count towards your personal honorific and also towards a Lodge or Chapter achievement total.

I would hope that every mason in our province will give something towards the Festival however large or small. I hope that every taxpaying mason will “Gift Aid” purchase the Festival jewel which can be worn with pride.

Charitable giving is one of the cornerstones of our Order and supporting this Festival should be the main aim of Lodge fund raising and giving during this five year period. Every lodge will have a Charity Steward or appointed Festival Steward through whom the Festival can be supported and I would hope that every lodge will strive to achieve the highest level of Platinum Status.

During the Festival period there will be events and other opportunities to support your province and hopefully enjoy ourselves. The Festival will end with a Festival Gala Dinner.

So it is with enthusiasm and pride in our province that I am pleased to ask for your support. I am honoured to be the Provincial Grand Master of Devonshire and I ask you to help me maintain the honour of the province by supporting this festival. Let us prove we are masons who care and set about this opportunity for doing good once again.

I look forward to sharing the joy and happiness this festival will bring and thank you in anticipation of your loyal dedication and commitment to Masonic charity.
