In May our Provincial Charity Steward, W.Bro. Brian Ward, hosted an online seminar for our Lodge Charity Stewards and others with an interest in charity and fundraising.

With around 50 participants logged on, a whole range of interesting and informative topics were explained and discussed, including:

The role of the Charity Steward
Why Lodges should have a Charity Steward
Simple rules for organising an event

As well as how Provincial and National charities and resources work such as:

The Provincial Grand Charity Steward
The Kent Mark Benevolent Fund
The Mark Benevolent Fund

Especially how to submit petitions for worthy causes and the benefits of relief chests and maximising Gift Aid.
