The West Wales Festival in favour of the Masonic Charitable Foundation was launched at a Provincial Zoom Meeting on Monday 23rd November 2020. Brethren from across the Province welcomed the new Chief Executive of the MCF, Les Hutchinson and the Fund Raising Manager Paul Crocket to the first ever Virtual Festival Launch Meeting.
The Brethren were welcomed by the Festival Chairman and Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W Bro Ryland James. The Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro James Ross formally launched the appeal in his address and this was followed by interesting and informative presentations from Les Hutchinson and Paul Crocket.
There was a lively question and answer session about various charity issues followed by a summing up from the Festival Chairman. An initial donation towards the Festival of £300,000 was transferred to the MCF in May. Individual lodge targets and funds accumulated so far can be found here.
