Lord Harris Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 1494

Consecrated 21 January 1978

Charity

As all Masons and many people, who are not Masons, will be aware, charity is the foundation principle of the entire, extended Masonic family.

The Mark Province of Kent, until 13 June 2020, was privileged to be "in Festival" by way of the 2020 Festival in favour of the Mark Benevolent Fund. The Mark Benevolent Fund helps Mark Masons and their families but also makes significant grants to non Masonic charities.

The Lord Harris Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Lodges directed their charitable activities in support of the 2020 Festival.

At the Provincial Mark Meeting on Saturday 27 September 2014, it was certified that the Lord Harris Lodge of Mark Master Masons 1494 had qualified as a Grand Patron Gold Award Lodge in the Mark Benevolent Fund and the Worshipful Master is now authorised to wear the distinctive Jewel at all meetings. The Worshipful Master for the year, W.Bro. Mike Nolan, accepted the award on behalf of the Lodge with much pride.

The Grand Patron Gold Award certificate is reproduced below.
