The Masonic Charitable Foundation recently donated five thousand pounds to the London branch of the ‘Choir with no Name’.

The choir is formed of London’s homeless, everything they do is underpinned by the charities vision, mission, and core values that all people in our society will have a group of good friends with whom they can sing their hearts out enabling marginalized people to make friends, build their confidence and skills and find their place in society

A representative of the Choir said For many of our choir members the support of family and friends is absent. At the Choir with No Name everyone is welcomed and made a fuss of, regardless to their background or life story. Our staff, volunteers and members support each other's endeavors, musical or otherwise.  We also strive to retain our family feel with our supporters and friends. We create a relaxed atmosphere where members are encouraged to enjoy themselves!

Metropolitan Grand Lodge Charity Steward, W.Bro. Tony Shields added This is a very worthwhile cause that provides help to those in London who are not so fortunate as ourselves and who badly need any support that society can provide. The members of London Freemasonry are delighted to make this donation in the knowledge that it will be put to good use to support those in need”
