Alms and the Man

Listed below are some of the charitable organisations the Lodge collects funds (alms) to support. It is customary at the end of our Regular Lodge meetings, (usually during our meal known as the Festive Board), to ask the assembled Brethren to donate a sum of money to the "Charity Box" in order to support those less fortunate in life or who provide services and comfort whether it be material or spiritual, for such, without detriment, of course, to ourselves or our connections.
