A major grant of £74,500 has been awarded to the West Yorkshire Scout Group by the Mark Benevolent Fund. The Grant will fund the building of a brand new storage facility at the Bradley Wood County Scout Campsite & Activity Centre in Brighouse.
Scouting mirrors the aims of Freemasonry in so many ways, so it’s good to see the MBF supporting them at this challenging time.
The Mark Benevolent Fund made grants in excess of £200,000 to charitable projects in West Yorkshire last year, including major grants for an Ambulance Support Vehicle for St John Ambulance Yorkshire, a Rapid Response Vehicle for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a new Mini Bus for Martin House Hospice and the refurbishment of a Barge for Safe Anchor Trust. It also supported several Hospices in the Province and the flood victims of South Yorkshire earlier in the year.
Our MBF Festival in 2023 and the support it receives from our own charity, the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust, will help the Mark Benevolent Fund continue the excellent work it does in our communities.
It’s good to have some good news in these difficult times, but those same times have severely restricted income to both the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust and the Festival. So please review what you give to the Trust by Standing Order and continue to support the Festival in any way you can. It will be very much appreciated and will help the good work our Mark charities do to continue. Your money, your Province, your support, your success
