Charities, schools and local football clubs amongst 17 organisations to benefit from Freemasons quarterly grants
Financial donations of almost £25,000 have been handed to various organisations across the Yorkshire region by the Freemasons.
Amongst the recipients of grants raging from between £3160 and £750 are Down’s Syndrome North Yorkshire, Wakefield’s Standbridge Community Centre, and Clifton Rangers Youth Football Club in Brighouse.
The donations come courtesy of the Province of Yorkshire West Riding’s Provincial Grand Master’s Fund, which each quarter distributes tens-of-thousands-of-pounds to local good causes across the Province – whose geographically area ranges from Sheffield in the South to Ripon in the North, and Goole in the East to Waddington in the West.
Recipients of this quarter’s grants include:
David S Pratt, Provincial Grand Master for the Freemasons Province of Yorkshire West Riding, said: “Once again it fills me with enormous pride that the Freemasons of Yorkshire West Riding can financially support various organisations across our membership area.
“Each quarter, our members nominate good causes who need monetary assistance with various projects, be it new kit for football teams to new kitchens for community buildings.
“Charity is one of the foundation stones of Freemasonry and it continues to be at the heart of what we do.
“Each recipient - and I’ delighted to say that on this occasion there are 17 of them - will use their grant to continue the wonderful work they do in their local community.”
