Provincial Grand Secretaries and Scribes E workshop
Provincial Grand Secretaries and Scribes E from six different Provinces attended Freemasons’ Hall over the 4th and 5th June to take part in a training workshop. Subject areas covered included protocol, executive changes, registrations, foreign relations, Project Hermes, by-laws and Members’ Pathway. Feedback from the attendees was very positive: “Please accept my sincere thanks and convey them also to your colleagues, not only for the excellent workshop, but also for your hospitality. It was an absolute pleasure.” Our Director of Masonic Services John Tully expressed his gratitude to all those members of staff who took time to prepare and deliver some very interesting and informative presentations during the workshop. The next workshop is scheduled for 8th and 9th October 2019.
Norfolk Freemasons donate £190,000 to fund state-of-the-art prostate cancer scanner
Thousands of men with prostate cancer will be able to avoid the damaging side effects of surgery thanks to a new research scanner that will be installed in Norwich. Thanks to fundraising by Norfolk Freemasons, a state-of-the-art Affymetrix Microarray Scanner will be used to differentiate between the majority of harmless prostate cancers, known as pussycat cancers, and the 10 per cent which are aggressive, known as tiger cancers. Norfolk Freemasons raised not only the £144,000 needed for the scanner, which will be in a new screening laboratory at the University of East Anglia, but also another £46,000 for prostate cancer research. On top of that, the Masonic Charitable Foundation have given a grant of £100,000 to further fund the research project. You can read more about this fantastic donation on the FMT website.
