It Ain’t Over Yet

Foodbank Warehouse – Food Sorting by Volunteers

Just when we thought things were getting back to normal up pops a new Covid variant.

Members of the Province have acquitted themselves well since the onset of the pandemic, which now seems an age away.

Much of this was done by contributions to the Province of Middlesex Benevolent Fund via the Relief Chest Scheme.

So, with the new strains of Covid becoming apparent we can truthfully say, “it ain’t over yet”.

For those who have been recipients of Masonic relief dispensed through various local charities, it is not over for them either.

The work goes on.

To this end the Provincial Grand Charity Steward, W Bro John Briggs PAGSuptWks, has arranged for foodbanks to receive some additional financial support by way of a £1,000 grant.

This money will come from the Province of Middlesex Benevolent Fund as mentioned above.

This £1,000 will also be matched by the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF), which will double the value of the grant.

The recipient foodbanks are:-

– Harrow Foodbank
– Hillingdon Foodbank
– Salvation Army Harrow Corps
– Salvation Army, Harlesden
– Salvation Army Staines
– Safra NW London
– Yiewsley and West Drayton Foodbank
– Feltham Foodbank
– North Enfield Food Bank
– Ealing Foodbank

Additional Award from the MMC –

W Bro John Briggs also reported that the Middlesex Masonic Charity had made a generous grant of £4885 to the Charity MIND in Harrow – www.mindinharrow.org.uk.

This is particularly pertinent at a time when those most vulnerable in terms of mental health will get the support they need.
