County Gate Lodge supports the following Masonic charities

The Masonic Samaritan Fund (MSF)

The Province of West Kent is working towards a target of £2.25 million pounds to support the MSF in 2015. 

The Lodges and Chapters in West Kent have been contributing towards this target for four years and we are now approaching the halfway stage of the appeal. 

County Gate Lodge members have so far donated over £5,000, hopefully with a lot more to come before the appeal ends in May 2015.

The Masonic Trust for Girls & Boys

The Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys is one of the central Masonic charities. Its primary aim is to assist with the education and welfare of the children of deceased or distressed Freemasons. When funds permit, however, the Trust may also assist non-Masonic children by giving grants to other children¹s charities.
