Help for those flooded

When the January flooding affected many areas of England and Wales causing widespread damage and disruption to many communities, the President of the Freemasons’ Grand Charity approved a £20,000 emergency grant for the British Red Cross in support of their UK flood relief efforts.  This emergency grant from the Freemasons’ Grand Charity is in addition to £30,000 previously donated to support relief and recovery efforts in the badly hit area of Somerset. The Somerset Community Foundation received £28,500 and the Burnham-on-Sea Area Rescue Boat received £1,500.
