Freemasonry offers its members a chance to make new friends and meet in a social environment. As a fraternity engages people of all ages, from tradesmen to monarchs. Whatever your status in life, Freemasonry provides an invaluable network of likeminded people never short of a social event to attend.
From its very earliest days Freemasonry has actively supported charity. Across 2018/19, charitable giving at lodge and provincial level totalled £45M, including the £18M awarded through the Masonic Charitable Foundation. Freemasons also undertook five million hours of volunteering across the same period.
As you progress through the degrees of freemasonry, the personal development can be very rewarding. Whilst Freemasonry can help good men become better men, only men of upstanding character are permitted to join. Why not take a look at our national magazine, 'Freemasonry Today'.
