Thanks to Roger Freeman
Retiring this month, Roger Freeman is returning home to Cornwall after five years managing the Masonic Relief Grants team at the Grand Charity office in Freemasons’ Hall, London. Roger has been an influential force within the team, providing information and expertise gained during a career in the Civil Service spanning 40 years.
Roger’s role as an area manager in the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) provided him with knowledge that proved invaluable when he became Provincial Grand Almoner in Cornwall, a position he held from 1992-2007. He brought this same expertise to the Masonic Relief Grants team, playing a crucial role in ensuring that applicants received guidance on available state benefits, in addition to the help available from the central masonic charities. Roger will be missed by everyone at the Grand Charity for his hard work and dedication over the years.
‘It has been an honour to work alongside so many Provincial Grand Almoners, assisting them in their demanding role, helping thousands of people in need,’ said Roger.
‘It would not have been possible without support from the Masonic Relief Grants team, all of whom are extremely dedicated. I am certain the team will continue to strengthen, and I wish all the best to everyone at the central masonic charities.’
