Since its founding in 2003 the Metropolitan Grand Lodge has promoted many worthy causes under the Metropolitan Grand Master’s annual appeals.
The Metropolitan Grand Stewards Lodge has been proud to support these and many other good causes since its founding a few years afterwards and has achieved awards in most if not all of the appeals to date and this year earned the METROPOLITAN GRAND MASTER’S AWARD FOR SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT FOR THE FIRE BRIGADE APPEAL.
In previous years we were honoured to achieve
- GRAND PATRON OF THE ROYAL MASONIC TRUST FOR GIRLS AND BOYS
- GRAND PATRON OF THE ROYAL MASONIC BENEVOLENT INSTITUTION
- GRAND PATRON OF THE MASONIC SAMARITAN FUND
- DIAMOND MEMBER OF THE FRIENDS OF THE RMBI
- METROPOLITAN GRAND LODGE RMBI APPEAL SILVER TROWEL AWARD
- METROPOLITAN GRAND MASTER’S AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT FOR THE METROPOLITAN MASONIC CHARITY
- METROPOLITAN GRAND MASTER’S AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT FOR THE MMC APPEAL FOR LONDON’S AIR AMBULANCE
- GRAND PATRON OF THE METROPOLITAN GRAND MASTERS TERCENTENARY APPEAL
And we don’t only give to the Metropolitan Grand Lodge sponsored charities. We have always strived to donate some of the charity money we collect to non-masonic causes. For instance, we have also donated quite large sums to the Crosslight Advice (Chiswick Branch), a charity which deals with poverty and distress, and the Pilgrims Hospice in the past year alone.
