Local MP backs Freemasons’ meals for vulnerable people

Reading Time: 3 minutes London Masons are providing 800 free hot meals a week and have now extended the funding for that for the next 3 months. The meals are provided for those residents in need in Ealing and Acton identified by the Council, local youth center, women’s refuge and the Ealing Mutual Aid Group.

Freemasons provide NHS shift survival packs

Reading Time: 3 minutes It all started when members of Crosby Lodge No 3714, Ron Elliot and Jake Huggett produced and delivered some simple wash packs, containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel and deodorant which weren’t available on the wards to staff and recovering patients at Aintree Hospital to enable them to freshen up. Many staff are unable to travel home and, in any event, the hours are long, and the work intense and demanding, so the packs were a welcome blessing.
