Erdemont Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 1894

Consecrated 12 June 2008

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 Province of Kent was recently 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 Erdemont 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 Erdemont Lodge of Mark Master Masons 1894 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, WBro Tom Quinn, accepted the award on behalf of the Lodge with much pride!

At the Provincial Meeting on Saturday 26 September 2015, The Royal Ark Mariner Lodge was presented with the Mark Benevolent Fund Vice-Patron award, while the Mark Lodge received the Kent 2020 Festival Bronze Award Certificate. Both Lodges attained the Festival Platinum Award and will continue to support the Province as we approach the next charitable project.
