Grand Patron Gold Awards


On behalf of the Mark Benevolent Fund I would like to thank and congratulate all the West Yorkshire Brethren who were presented with their Mark Benevolent Fund Grand Patron Gold Award collarets at the Annual Provincial Meeting on 2 April 2016.

No less than 28 Brethren and one Mark Lodge (Integrity 110) qualified for this highest level of MBF Patronage and 26 of them, plus the W.M. of Integrity, attended the meeting to receive their Awards personally.  R.W.Bro. John Prizeman, President of the Mark Benevolent Fund, broke off from a family visit to Liverpool to be at our meeting to present the Awards and was extremely impressed their achievements.

The meeting marked the launch of our West Yorkshire Mark Benevolent Fund Festival and this was a very fitting start to our fundraising. Information on how Brethren of the Province and their Lodges can qualify can be obtained from your Lodge Charity Steward or Provincial Charity Representative. More details about the Festival itself and information on our progress will also be available on this web site soon.
