Local Community Groups and Charities in £176,000 Masonic Grant Giving to Mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

So far a total of more than £176,000 of an allotted £250,000 has been given to 93 local organisations by the Freemasons of Yorkshire, West Riding to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Speaking at a ceremony held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds attended by the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Dr Ingrid Roscoe, John K Clayton, Provincial Grand Master of Yorkshire, West Riding, said: “We are proud to be able to mark this very special occasion, the sixtieth anniversary of Her Majesty’s reign in the this way and help those who work tirelessly for own communities.

“In the last 25 years the Province has given over £2.5 million to support local non-Masonic causes. Not a penny of that money came from the general public, it was all down to the members of the Province, their families and their friends.

“It is fitting that an organisation such as the Freemasons, which teaches and practices concern for people; care for the less fortunate and help for those in need, should mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty by making available these grants.”

The Lord Lieutenant said: “I am indebted to the Freemasons of Yorkshire, West Riding for their incredible generosity.

“We appreciate that in these tough and challenging economic times giving to charity may not be as high a priority as it once was. This is not the case with the Freemasons and your grants clearly demonstrate this.”

The following is a list of the recipients of Grants to July.
