Presentations in Lodges

The Executive would like every Lodge to receive a presentation on the Festival each year.

Presentations will normally be given by the local Area Director, supported by the Executive.

Presentations will be updated regularly, to ensure the message is current and relevant.

What can we do to support the Festival?

Give regularly, using gift aid, starting as soon as you can afford it.

Support events and fund-raising activities.

Organise events as a Lodge.

Encourage brethren and families to use the Fund.

Transfer funds raised to MSF, so they can be used as grants.

How much do you want from me?

“If every Freemason in Derbyshire

donated the price of two pints of beer every month,

under a gift aid pledge

for the duration of the Festival,

we would achieve the Provincial Grand Master’s financial goal.”

We are asking every Derbyshire Freemason to give what they feel they can afford.
