2021 Festival boosted by £100,000

The 2021 Festival has achieved a landmark in earning over £100,000 in special interest!

This fantastic ability to receive a higher interest rate means the Festival is significantly boosted.

Due to a special Festival arrangement, monies paid into the Festival Fund is achieving a significantly higher interest rate than can be currently earned from the Relief Chest.

Lodges can boost this further by moving monies from their Relief Chest into the Festival and earn much more interest… making the money do the work.
