Craft Annual Meeting and The 2020 Festival total reaches £3.3m
At the Craft Annual Meeting it was confirmed that the Festival total had reached £3.3m and those Lodges that had during the year reached Grand Patron, Platinum Grand Patron and Diamond Grand Patron were awarded their certificates by the Pro Provincial Grand Master.
The Festival Committee and the RMTGB would like to give huge thanks to all the Brethren and Companions who have supported this great cause and have enabled Middlesex to get to such a tremendous total at this stage of the Festival.
To the Brethren who have an honorific, the Companions who have their Triple Tau, to the Charity Stewards who have promoted the Festival and the Lodges and Chapters who have achieved various honorific levels and who have given their charity funds in their Relief Chests to this charity, we are most grateful indeed.
There is now less than 2 years left of our Festival and still many good causes, many children in distress, that means we need to carry on, in effect we have not yet ‘performed our allotted task’. We know that this tremendous support will continue until right up until the end and thank you all for that in advance.
However, whilst there is no target for our Festival, other than to raise as much as we can, lots of Members are still to contribute and there is much more we can do for the children……and this video reminds us why:-

What is The 2020 Festival ?
A period of 5 years, ending in 2020, when all Masons in Middlesex are asked to support one of our Masonic Charities, the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys. This is a charity doing amazing work.
Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys
As you discover more about the work of the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys (RMTGB) you will feel reassured that by supporting The 2020 Festival you will be making a lasting difference to a great many young people who most need our help.

‘To relieve poverty and advance the education of children of a Masonic family and, where funds permit, support other children in need.’
