The MCF Great North Run Challange

Dear all.

For those of you who are already members of the Provincial Grand Charity Stewards Facebook Group you will have seen my post today regarding the MCF Great North Run team.  There are three of us running and at the same time, attempting to raise funds for the MCF.  I am aware that you cannot share posts from within this group and so I have added below the words from that post and also attached a photo of the team.

I would be most grateful if you could, if possible, share this post on your Provincial social media channels, particularly if you are in Festival Provinces.  If that is the case, then please remember that any donations received from individuals, Lodges (and Chapters) and of any donations from the province, will count towards festival totals.

The MCF – your charity, our charity. A charity for freemasons for families for everyone. A charity funded entirely by Freemasons, that

builds better lives by encouraging opportunity, promoting independence and improving wellbeing. A charity that strives for excellence

by making a difference and being responsive to need.

So far this year (since 1st April 2022) the MCF has responded to the need of 73 local and national charities with grants totalling in

excess of £1.5million.

So far this year the MCF has made a difference to the lives of nearly 1,100 Freemasons or family members with grants in the value

of £3.5million.

But the MCF can only do this with through to support and donations from Freemasons. That is I am running in this year’s Great North Run

with two of my colleagues in order to raise funds for the charity so that it can continue to provide this support.

If you wish to sponsor us that would be great, (And don’t forget, any donations that come in from Provinces in Festival will have their

donations allocated to their appeals). If you are not able to make a donation then please take some time to look at our website to see

how amazing the MCF is –

Myself and my running mates would be most grateful for any support that you can give to this endeavour.
