Concordia Lodge No.4480
Tapton Masonic Hall
Our Lodge, and Freemasons as a whole, are very supportive of many charities, both Masonic and Non-Masonic.
This page aims to give some examples of the charity work we do.
SUPPORTING AIR AMBULANCES ACROSS THE COUNTRY
£1.5 million donated by Freemasons to life-saving air ambulance services Every year.
The air ambulance services in England and Wales save thousands of lives by providing rapid medical care in emergencies. Since 2007.
The Freemasons’ Grand Charity
Is a grant-making charity dedicated to supporting people in need, having donated more than £100 million since 1981. We provide grants that have totalled nearly £8 million each year in the areas of: medical research, support for vulnerable people, youth opportunities, hospice services, air ambulances, world wide disaster relief and assistance to Freemasons and their dependants in financial need.
Every time there is a Lodge Meeting for the men, the ladies meet for an evening dinner and they hold a raffle or an auction or some other fund raiser.
This goes to flowers for special occasions and for ladies who are not well, as well as a donation to the charity chosen by the First Lady whose husband or partner is Worshipfull Master, or the Group Vote.
The support the ladies give to our Lodge cannot be over estimated. We are very grateful for their participation and they are a shining example of the importance Freemasonry puts on the family.
Teddies for Children's Hospitals
What's that got to do with Freemasonry?
Well, some of the members of Concordia work along with other Freemasons to provide Teddy Bears for the children who are admitted to The Children's Hospital.
Something nice to cuddle when they are feeling poorly.
We are very proud that this local idea, started by a member of Concordia Lodge, has been copied Nationwide.
