PGLA loves Charities

Benevolence has always been the cornerstone of Freemasonry. Goodwill to all and a desire to help those less fortunate are fundamental principles of the Masonic Fraternity and therefore, charitable giving is a major part of membership of the Freemasons.

Our members engage in acts of benevolence in a variety of ways, either through simple gestures such as gift giving, or through the raising of monies for a variety of funds which help a wide variety of people.

As the main benefactors of charitable institutions established by the Fraternity such as the Various Widows Funds, or Teddies for Loving Care among others and also by supporting many charities in wider society such as the Laura Lynn Foundation or the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, Freemasons of Ireland continue to put benevolence and kindness to others at the forefront of their membership.

Teddies for Loving Care (TLC)

The simple objective is for Freemasons to provide teddy bears and soft toys to Paediatric Emergency Departments, for the medical staff to give, at their discretion, to children admitted who are in severe distress and where the staff feel that a teddie or soft toy to cuddle will help alleviate the stress and assist them in their work.
