Richard Collyer Lodge is proud to be supporting The Freemasons' Grand Charity as part of the Province of Sussex 2017 Festival. 

Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole - both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities.

Masonic charity is exercised at every level: individual Lodges make gifts and give aid to their own communities and every Province also gives large sums of money to regional causes. Nationally, our efforts are channelled through four main charity organisations:

Masonic Samaritan Fund

The Grand Charity

Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys

Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution
