Provincial Grand Lodge Yorkshire North & East Ridings 2018 Masonic Festival Website

The third Regional Launch took place in Scarborough on the 28th. May and welcomed mainly masons from the seaside area and their partners. As with all the Launches, the Chief Executive of the Masonic Samaritan Fund, Richard Douglas, addressed the meeting. Richard had two aims in mind. Firstly, he wanted to inform everyone of the function of the fund but secondly, he hoped to raise awareness of the availability of help for those in need. Peter Mawer spoke to the meeting on behalf of the Festival Team encouraging fund raising and explaining the best ways to correctly achieve this.
