Funds raised will go directly to the Mark Benevolent Fund (Reg charity 207610) who, over the past few years, have supported such worthy causes such as the £440,000 awarded to the Blood Bike charities of England and Wales providing 16 Blood Bikes and 10 Blood Cars; £3.4m to St John Ambulance to provide a combination of 52 Ambulances, Treatment Centres and Support Vehicles; £85,000 to the Addenbrookes Charitable Trust for the purchase of a Laparoscopic Surgical Kit to help with keyhole surgery for over 100 new born babies each year; along with numerous smaller charities.

During the current pandemic thousands of meals have been provided to the elderly and vulnerable who were required to shield for much of 2020, Foodbanks were replenished, PPE provided and communications equipment was sent to care homes and hospices.

The Provincial Grand Mark Lodge of Surrey 2022 Festival in support of the Mark Benevolent Fund is an opportunity for Surrey Mark Masons, supporters, families and friends to come together in the spirit of giving and mutual support.

Our fundraising target is: £1000
