Durham Freemasons Say Thank You NHS
Today Masonic Halls throughout the Province will be Raising the Flag in support of NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day. Flags will remain displayed for 7 days to signal the official start of celebrations to mark the 73rd Anniversary of the birth of our pioneering National Health Service (NHS), bringing free healthcare to everyone.,
The United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), the governing body for Freemasons, is inviting its 200,000 members to fly specially designed flags at 10am, to celebrate this unique day dedicated to the NHS, social care and all those that work on the front line, who have saved so many lives during the pandemic. The celebration will also remember those workers we sadly lost.
In appreciation of the tremendous work of our NHS, the Provincial Grand Master is today immensely proud to make funds of up to £20,000 available to organisations to support projects to help any health and social care / emergency workers who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Durham Freemasons are invited to identify charitable organisations to become beneficiaries of the fund, which can be of any nature, will support, develop, and improve the health and the emotional and psychological well-being of the identified groups.
It is not anticipated that the project will help with:
• Private medical treatment fees.
• Private education fees.
• Nursing home fees.
• Educational grants, study fees or course costs.
• Legal fees.
The closing date for applications is 31st July 2021.
