Each year the RMTGB supports around 2000 children of the Masonic family in many different ways to ensure they can reach their potential, despite the tragedy they have often faced during their young lives.
It is important to emphasise that in the first instance the RMTGB is a poverty charity, not an educational charity. It exists to ensure that poverty, which has arisen due to a distress, does not impact on a child’s welfare and education.
In recent years there have been an increasing number of applications that have been accepted and as this trend looks likely to continue The 2020 Festival appeal is vital.
In addition, the RMTGB provides support to around 10,000 children who have no connection to Freemasonry, but are educationally disadvantaged.
As for Middlesex, during the past five years, the RMTGB has supported 34 young people in the Province at a cost of £524,037.
The Provincial Grand Master, the Provincial Executives (Craft and Royal Arch), the RMTGB and more importantly the thousands of disadvantaged children who never had the chances in life that most of us had, thank you in advance for your support of The 2020 Festival.
