LAUNCH: OCTOBER 2016

FESTIVAL EVENT: 2021

In support of the grants and services provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation, the Buckinghamshire 2021 Festival appeal will launch in October 2016.

The Foundation took over the work of the four central Masonic Charities in April 2016 and now provides a wide range of grants and services to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need. The Foundation also supports other charities.

The Province of Buckinghamshire is one of the first Masonic Provinces to launch a Festival appeal for the new Foundation.
