Lodge 79, Charity "if we can help somebody .............."

Helping to relieve poverty and distress amongst Brethren and their families is one of the 'foundation stones' on which Irish Freemasonry is built. Unfortunately in this new millennium it is still necessary for this work to continue. However in recent years, due to increased generosity of Irish Freemasons, the 'charitable work' we engage in has been extended. The various charity committees within our Order now actively assist several very worthy 'non masonic' causes
     
W.Bro. John McCague presenting a cheque for £2000 to P.I.P.S. The money raised was from the Lodge's Annual Kids Christmas Party.
     
   
W.Bro. Kenny Hassan presenting a cheque for £1100 to The Children's Heartbeat Trust N.I. The money raised was from the Lodge's Annual Kids Christmas Party.
     
 
Rt.Wor. Bro. Barry Brewster accepts a cheque from the Officers and Brethren of St. Patrick's M.L. No. 79 as a donation towards the Ovarian Cancer Research Appeal.
     
Children's Hospice  
The Lodge presents a cheque to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice.
