£250,000 Grand Charity Aid For Forces

Wednesday, 01 September 2010
A new annual grant initiative is being provided by The Freemasons’ Grand Charity - £250,000 to a major national charity, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help. The money is to be divided and distributed to branches throughout the country, providing funding at a local level.

Over the past year, The Grand Charity has received numerous requests from individual members asking us to donate to charities supporting the Armed Forces. The Council selected SSAFA Forces Help as the first recipient of a grant under the new initiative to support their excellent work in helping current and former members of the Armed Forces and their families.

A Grand Charity spokesman said: ‘We believe that the people on the ground know best where to direct these funds, which will assist hundreds of servicemen and women past and present, and their families.’
