Charity is at the heart of Freemasonry and the Crest of Mount Edgcumbe members pride themselves in giving generously.
In 2016, a representative of the Master Masons Charity ‘Air Ambulance Appeal’, receives a cheque for £7,000 from the Worshipful Master of the Crest of Mount Edgecumbe Lodge 7431. (below)
In 2017, the lodge increased its donation to £10,000 and has, therefore, gained the Metropolitan Grand Master’s award of Excellence.
Four of our members were invited to visit the Air Ambulance helipad which is on top of the Royal London Hospital where we saw for ourselves where the helicopter is based and learnt a great deal about the organisation behind its operation. (picture above)
