Charity

The practice of charitable giving - both masonic and non-masonic is a very important element of Freemasonry.   What sets Freemasonry apart from other charitable fund raising organisations is that all monies raised is from a mason's own pocket. Freemasonry does not raise money by public appeal.

Anton Lodge is very proud of its charitable achievements in support of Masonic charities and in recognition of its efforts has been awarded:
Grand Patron
Royal Masonic Hospital
1970
Patron
Royal Masonic Institution for Girls

Patron

Grand Patron

In addition to raising money in support of Masonic Charities, Freemasons have a long tradition of supporting local charities. Anton Lodge is no exception and in 2017 supported local charities, by donating in excess of £3,200.

These charities included:

Naomi House
Veterans in Action
Andover Neighbourcare
Andover VIPs
Andover Young Carers
