Community Appeal for Local Mayors (CALM)

A message from our Provincial Grand Master

Brethren & Companions,

As part of our Tercentenary Celebrations, and to build much stronger links with our local communities, I announced on 2 May that the West Kent Freemasons will be donating £10,000 to every Mayor in our Province – to support their individual Charity Appeal – during the 2017/18 financial year. The six boroughs are Bromley, Bexley, Dartford, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge & Malling and Royal Tunbridge Wells.

It is my hope and that of our Provincial Charity Steward and his team that you will give this Appeal the same tremendous support you have given to my previous requests for TLC, MTSFC and PGDofKC.

We will announce the charities the respective Mayors are supporting in early June and we will arrange presentation evenings at the Centres within each borough throughout the year.

Any amount raised over the £60,000 will be distributed to any other Charities your Lodge or Chapter has supported on a match funding basis up to £250.

This will be the last appeal the Province will make before we go into the next Festival

Yours sincerely & fraternally,

Mark Estaugh

Provincial Grand Master
