In an increasingly divisive world, many people are looking for unity and purpose to help guide their way. Compassion and respect are much more important now than ever before. Freemasonry is one of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, open to those of all backgrounds. The organisation’s aim is empower members to be the best they can be, both for themselves and society around them. It does this by providing a structure of support to help them make positive contributions to their local communities, whether it be through fundraising events or volunteer work. In an uncertain world, the Masonic principles of integrity, respect and charity ring as true today as they ever have before.
