Trustees of the Sussex Masonic Charities Foundation, CIO have ‘distance' visited hospices within Sussex and delivered 50 half litre bottles of hand sanitiser.

Sussex Masonic Charities Foundation Chairman Mike Harris said “ These amazing people in our community work tirelessly at the hospices and thoroughly deserve all the help we, as Freemasons, can offer. Once again it is heartwarming as a Sussex Freemason to see our contributions so warmly and gratefully received”

Support to the Royal Sussex County and Princes Royal Hospital staff

Sussex Freemasons, through the Sussex Masonic Charity Foundation, CIO have funded the purchase of eight mobile phones for use by Anaesthetic Department staff at the Royal Sussex County and the Princess Royal hospitals.
The phones are urgently needed to help in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

As Rachel Bailey, the department Administration Manger explains “Usually we have just three admin staff to cover 150 doctors, but due to demand placed on us by the pandemic we have had to increase our team to eight. These phones will help us communicate as four of us are working from home and four are working in the hospitals at the Princess Royal in Haywards Heath and the Royal Sussex County in Brighton.
Our doctors usually work a three part rota, but due to the pandemic we are now running two 12 ½ hour shifts to look after the patients of Sussex.”

Freemasonry is one of the world’s largest and oldest non-religious and non-political fraternal and charitable organisations.

It is open to people from all walks of life, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic position in society.

How to join in 3 steps

There’s no complicated method to becoming a Freemason. Simply get in touch with us by completing the enquiry form at the bottom of this page, or by emailing directly, and we will contact you. That’s it.

We will put you in touch with a Lodge in your area, or one of our specialist Lodges that matches your particular interest. The members of the Lodge will then make arrangements to meet with you, probably in a relaxed social environment, to talk with you about Freemasonry.

You like what the Lodge has told you and they in turn think that you’re a good fit for their particular Lodge; arrangements are made to initiate you into Freemasonry, joining over 200,000 other Freemasons in England, Wales and overseas Districts. Sorry to disappoint, but most of the rumours about the initiation ceremony are untrue.

…and we have a motorcycling lodge too
