Over 50 members of the masonic community living in Somerset received grants and services totalling £162,052 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation.

The support was provided over the previous 12 months to Freemasons or their family members experiencing a financial, health or family need.

Thanks to the generosity of Freemasons in Festival Provinces, the Masonic Charitable Foundation was able to provide over £14.2 million to support members of the masonic community across England and Wales.

  • £2.4 million was given to households in financial distress, who were unable to afford everyday living costs.
  • £2.9 million helped people access the medical treatment, mobility aids, home adaptations, respite care and counselling they need to live healthy and independent lives.
  • £3.8 million helped parents afford IT equipment, course materials, school uniforms and extracurricular activities for their children in full-time education.
  • £5 million was provided to support the RMBI in funding a range of nursing, residential and dementia care to meet the needs of older people.
