The HFAF Charity

(Registered Charity No: 1007693)

In common with our fellow Masons in the United Grand Lodge of England, it is part of our core beliefs that we give to charity.  We ask our members for recommendations of good causes. Many are prompted by personal experience for either themselves, their families or their friends. 

It is a specific requirement of our charity that 100% of any donation should be used for the purpose specified.

Many of our Lodges hold socials aimed at raising funds for a specific charity and in many instances the HFAF charity will also add to those funds. 


It is the wish of the Most Worshipful Grand Master, Christine Chapman to support Macmillan Nurses this year. We are starting by supporting the National Coffee Morning. The Provincial Grand Lodge are holding their Coffee Morning on Friday 26th September at Morecambe. 

4 Oncology Chairs have been purchased for University College Hospital with the proceeds of the NBA National Draw and Indian Lunch.


One of our main beneficiaries was the Teenage Cancer Trust and this was chosen by the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Bernice Abram to be one of our special Centenary charities in 2013 and we devoted a major part of our efforts to this cause. We have equipped  a room for  teenage cancer patients. We then concentrated our efforts on raising funds for the Alder Hey Children's NHS Trust Hospital. This being the choice of the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, Patricia Rothwell. 

We are very grateful to all our Lodges for their sterling efforts to raise funds for our Centenary appeal.
