The public ballot to decide how to spend £3 million of charity funding as part of the UGLE’s tercentenary celebrations, has now passed 100,000 votes, with less than a month to go until the polls close.
Freemasons throughout the country have selected 300 local charities to receive a special MCF Community Award, but the decision on the size of grant – ranging from £4,000 to £25,000 – is being decided by an online public vote.
Anyone who wishes to vote should visit the voting page, go to the page for their region and choose from the list of local charities which have been nominated. The vote began on Monday, 12 June and will finish on Monday, 31 July.
We are delighted that so many people have cast their vote in our special 300th anniversary poll. I hope many more people will help us decide which of these 300 excellent charities should receive the highest awards. Every vote counts, and you have until 31 July to make your choice.
David Innes, Chief Executive of the Masonic Charitable Foundation
