Every spring and autumn Freemasons from across Devon meet to support local organisations who require financial help, including children’s charities, schools, youth centres and locally-based charities such hospices, hospital services and cancer charities.

Earlier this month The Right Worshipful Brother Ian Kingsbury JP, Provincial Grand Master for Devonshire presented cheques to 22 deserving causes at a ceremony held in Plymouth.

The money was raised through the Wake Fund, a trust started by the Right Worshipful Brother William Alexander Kneel, Provincial Grand Master from 1970 to 1984; trustees distribute around £50,000 each year to worthwhile causes, groups and charities.

Since the first disbursement in 2001, almost £750,000 has been given to more than 780 non-Masonic organisations and charities throughout Devon, selected by members of the 133 Masonic lodges based throughout the county.
