The Yorkshire West Riding festival appeal announced on May 2nd 2023 at the Annual General Meeting of the Provincial Grand Lodge and will run over a period of 5 years until 2028.
To raise money for the MCF, provinces in England and Wales organise fundraising appeals known as festivals. A festival appeal usually lasts for five years. Festival appeals are a vital source of funding and generate the majority of donations made to the MCF. We are extremely grateful for the hard work and generosity of Freemasons who support their festival appeals.
The Province of Yorkshire, West Riding wishes to acknowledge the generosity of its members by issuing Festival jewels to all qualifying Brethren. The Province fully understands that it may not be within every brother's means to qualify for the various honorifics and greatly appreciates all donations made.
