Festival 2029 Presentation
What is a Festival?
A Festival is a Province-wide fundraising project, spread over a number of years (usually 5) to support the work of the Masonic Charitable Foundation. Each Province is ‘in Festival” every 11 years and it is now Yorkshire NER's turn - ending in 2029, hence it is called Festival 2029. At the end of the period of fund raising there is a Festival banquet at which the final total raised is announced.
What is the target?
It is hoped that every member will give what they can toward this excellent cause. As well as individuals Lodges and Chapters are encouraged to attain a level of achievement based on their membership. It is hoped that most Lodges and Chapters will reach one of the achievements and that at the very least all will have given something.
How do I support The Festival?
Donations can be made in a number of ways, but it is hoped that most members will sign up for a regular promise by direct debit. Your Charity Steward will have the forms and details of the other methods.
