The Freemasons’ Grand Charity supports the Street League Academy in Middlesbrough. It is a grant-making charity dedicated to supporting people in need, having donated more than £120million to good causes since 1981. The charity provides grants totalling nearly £8million each year in the areas of: medical research, support for vulnerable people, youth opportunities, hospice services, air ambulances and disaster relief; as well as providing assistance to Freemasons and their dependants in financial need. The Charity is continuing a commitment to charitable support that began nearly 300 years ago in the earliest days of organised Freemasonry.
