Provincial Grand Lodge of North Wales

No institution can boast a more solid foundation than that on which Freemasonry rests - the practice of every moral and social virtue!



Masonic Benevolent Association

North Wales Branch


The North Wales Masonic Benevolent Association is a Registered Charity, Number: 212691 and, as such, is independently active in it´s own right. It was founded in 1874 and today provides an essential link between the Province´s charitable activities and those at National level.

The objective of the Association is the advancement of Masonic Charity by means of three funds supporting:
A) The main National Masonic Charities.
B) Masonic Charity in general and more specifically the needs of those in the Province.
C) The immediate relief and assistance to deserving Masonic and Non-Masonic cases of distress.

Each Lodge and Chapter throughout the Province is represented at the Annual General Meeting which is held on the second Saturday in November of each year.

The Trustee´s Report together with the Annual Accounts, Balance Sheet and Auditor´s Report are published in the Masonic Year Book.

For more information on the work of the Association please contact the Secretary at the address below.

 Freemasonry benefits both the Local & National Community 

Freemasons make a major contribution to society through their own charities, as well as through donations to UK charities and worldwide disaster relief funds, with members playing an active role in their communities.





Freemasonry is more relevant and important to society today than ever!
