Duncan Visits Radio Stitch
Taking up an invitation from Stitch Radio our Provincial Almoner Duncan Maw visited their state of the art Studio’s within the University Hospital of North Tees.. The Hospital radio station were keen to learn about how Freemasons care for their brethren in need, their families and, when they are no longer with us, their widows.
Duncan was able to bring alive how Durham Freemasons operate as one big family. Looking out for each other and when things become hard lending that helping hand. He was keen to stress that Our commitment doesn’t end when our Brethren pass to the grand lodge above and talked about how we keep in touch with and support their dependents especially in the event of a members lodge being no longer in existence.
The Interviewer was intrigued to learn of the various forms of support provided to freemasons throughout the province by Durham Benevolence and the MCF. They were also surprised at the enormous contribution to local charities that are made by Lodges, Durham Benevolence and the MCF.
Should anyone be interested in helping with the ongoing support we give to the widows of closed lodges please email Duncan at firstname.lastname@example.org
