We are actively looking to promote Volunteering.
The Provincial Grand Master is keen to promote community support in the Province and would like to know in the first instance which members currently are contributing on a regular basis.
If you volunteer for anything at all, and or carry out unpaid help to others, we would like to know.
This is to see where we are as a Province before we start to drive forward with our plans.
Can you just send a reply email with your Name, Lodge and what you assist with and how many hours a month you volunteer.
It is all completely anonymous, and we will not release any of your details.
Drop us an email please. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Future plan.
We are looking to promote volunteering across the Province in several ways, here are some examples.
1) To create “Garden Rescue mixed with DIY SOS teams” and assist groups who make applications to the Benevolent Committee for assistance. In the past we have allocated money to them and had little more involvement, what we can now is offer our members skills and pay for materials to achieve a good result. This will help us grow immensely in the community. It will also mean our grant money can stretch so much further!
If you possess skills such as (and not limited to) Gardening, Joinery, Brickwork, Plastering, Decoration or Painting or can assist in general work such as leaning on a brush or making tea on site. please let us know, drop us an email please on email@example.com so we can start working on that part for the future.
2) For those who would like to get involved in volunteering in the community, we have already identified around 50 groups in County Durham alone who require volunteers.
3) Do you work to support blood bikes, Red Cross, local hospice or many other worth organisations.
Let us support the community together as Freemasons
If you would like to be signposted towards any of them let us know, we will certainly assist you.
