Charity has always been a core principle of Freemasonry and we’re proud of our history of helping those in need. Our members make an important contribution at a local and national level every year by giving both their time and money to make a real difference to a number of organisations and communities.
Freemasons helping their communities
Luz de Murcia Lodge #91 donate 1,000€ worth of food and grocery items to assist social services of Los Alcazares in keeping their stocks up.
in Murcia nearly 30,000 people depend on the food banks for their daily needs and their number is increasing.
Between March and July in 2022, 850,000 kilograms of basic foodstuffs were distributed in the Murcia Region, an increase of nearly 40% on the amount required the previous year, and that increase is ongoing.
As Murcia is the home for 145 freemasons spread over 6 Lodges, the Provincial Grand Master, Terence Pierce, has opened an initiative to give support to the community through the local Social Services Department.
Luz de Murcia Lodge #91, who meet in Los Alcazares, have just donated 1,000€ worth of food and grocery items to assist social services of Los Alcazares in keeping their stocks up.
Pictured are Javier Pacheco, Social Services Los Alcazares, Peter Horne and David Curley from Luz de Murcia Lodge, and Terence Pierce Prov.Grand Master.
Gala Dinner in Aid of Local Charities
The Freemasons of Murcia Province recently held a gala dinner, along with their families and friends, where a raffle was held.
The event raised €1,000 which has been split between two local charities - MABS Murcia and Oblatas Murcia.
The photos show the Provincial Master, R.W.Bro Terry Pierce presenting the cheques with W.Bro Roger Wilkins to MABS and presentation to Oblatas, both Murcian Charities.
