COMMUNITY TEAM OF PRIDE 2014 - ESSEX PROVINCIAL GRAND LODGE
The general public are usually wary of Freemasonry, knowing very little apart from bare knees and peculiar handshakes. The fact is they are magnificent charity fundraisers. On average each year, ten thousand Essex Freemasons, raise around £1 million, which is distributed, mostly anonymously, to some 500 different local charities.
Congratulations to Essex Provincial Grand Lodge for being our Corporate Team of Pride 2014.
