Mark Grand Lodge: MBF Grand Parade 2019

On Tuesday, 12 March 2019, the Brethren in attendance at the Communication of Grand Lodge enjoyed a spectacular parade of the Mark Benevolent Fund. Representatives of nearly forty of the charities that the MBF supported in 2018 entered Grand Lodge, each displaying the name of the charity that they represented and the amount that the MBF had awarded to them last year alone. There were representatives present from a diverse range of charities, covering assistance dogs, disability support, emergency disaster relief, hospices, and several medical charities.

Three of the charities gave short, but very emotional and inspirational talks, describing how the money granted to them by the MBF was being used, and how it had profoundly changed the lives and relieved some of the suffering of many of those in our communities.

The event gave a rare glimpse into what our charitable efforts do to those around us, and showed us some practical examples of what we have achieved.

More about this excellent event will follow.
