Brethren, your response to the Festival has been tremendous and unflagging. I take this opportunity to thank all of the brethren for their personal generosity and wonderful team spirit in raising funds in so many enjoyable and imaginative ways. May I also thank Lodge Charity Stewards, who are the most crucial people in making any festival a success, and to the Liaison Officers, Area Chairs and my Festival Committee, who carry the huge administrative burden. My especial thanks to our Provincial Grand Master, Most Excellent Grand Superintendent and the Executive for their unstinting support and advice.
As a Province, we can take pride in continuing to work hard and support our Provincial Grand Master in the aim of achieving £5m for the 2021 Festival. As we are aware the money raised will go directly to our first class Care Homes via the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution (RMBI).
On 22 June 2019, four Swansea Masons set out on gruelling 175-mile one-day ‘Home from Home’ ride from Llandudno to Porthcawl to raise funds for the 2021 festival in aid of the RMBI. The RMBI Care Co. is a charity which provides caring support for people in need of residential or nursing care, dementia support or limited sheltered accommodation, which it does via its network of 19 residential homes throughout the UK.
Picture updates from the Home from Home, The Queen Elizabeth Court in Llandudno, North Wales to Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court, Porthcawl, South Wales. Approximately 175 miles with in excess of 10,000ft of accumulative climbing in one day.
