Our Impact

Read more about how we use the generous donations of Freemasons to help Masonic families and registered charities

The home is such a lovely place, it’s like a family and everyone is really warm and kind. We work together as a team to make sure the residents have a good day, every day.

Working in both the enquiries and grants teams at the MCF, you never know what the next day will bring, which is something I really enjoy. Honestly, a lot of the people I talk to are in serious distress, so being able to stay as someone’s grants officer all the way through the process and make sure that they can get on with their day-to-day lives, or access things like benefits that aren’t even awarded through the MCF, is a real privilege to me.

Eventually I decided I needed a change – and that’s how I ended up with my dream job at the MCF.

Ted and Sally

After a premature birth, Ted developed cerebral palsy which means that he can’t walk or stand unaided. Ted now has an ‘Upsee mobility harness’ that we part funded and allows him to walk with the help of his mum, meaning he can put on his wellies and enjoy the great outdoors with his brother!
