Following the recent tragic events in Manchester, it has been decided that Masonic giving in aid of those affected should be coordinated through the East Lancashire Masonic Charity.
The Trustees of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Hertfordshire Benevolent Fund have already authorized an immediate donation of £5,000 to the ELMC.
Should Lodges or individuals wish to make further contributions, cheques made payable to ELMC may be sent to :
FAO Julie Ward
Hewlett Court Retirement Home
Bury, BL0 9XJ
Funds can also be transferred electronically to ELMC :
A/C No.: 88503372
Sort Code : 01-10-01
A note or reference indicating that the donation is for the Manchester Bomb Appeal should be included in either case.
Finally, the Provincial Grand Master feels it would be entirely appropriate for Lodges to observe a short period of silence at meetings at this time, as a mark of respect for those who have lost their lives, and support for all those affected.
