Since the completion of our Durham 2021 Festival, many have been asking about existing direct debits and new direct debits in support of the MCF. To that end, on Saturday 30th July our Provincial Grand Master has launched the continuous giving scheme which was so successful in the run up to the 2021 festival.
Anyone who has an existing direct debit from the 2021 festival DO NOT need to take action. Your direct debit is already counting as continuous giving towards our next festival.
If you wish to start a new commitment Click on the QR Code, attached to this post, or scan it with your camera phone to enable you to give continuously give each month, quarter or annually in support of the MCF.
This will enable us as a province to support the MCF whilst we are out of festival and anything you give will be credited to you and your lodge when we have a future festival. We did this to great effect in 2010 let’s do it again in 2022.
Paul Quinn has kindly agreed to be our relief chest co-ordinator for this fund and can be contacted for further information if required at email@example.com
Also attached to this post is a “Continuous Giving” application form which can be printed or sent electronically to your members. Please encourage those who’s direct debit to re-start a new direct debit and once again it can be forgotten.
