Hampshire and Isle of Wight Provincial Grand Chapter
Supporting Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance
On the 11th June 2022 at the Annual Convocation of Provincial Grand Chapter, the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent announced that the forthcoming years Charity Appeal would be to the benefit of the
Chapters and companions donating towards the appeal are asked to record all donations via the Provincial Charity Steward, E.Comp. David Wood so that a total can be recorded. Phone him on 07973 685198 for advice.
One off donations, perhaps Raffles, or donations direct from Chapter funds or from individuals which do not involve gift aid being claimed, should be made out to “Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance” and sent direct to David Wood (See details below) This will enable David to record the amount for the appeal and the Air Ambulance to receive the donation as soon as possible.
Cheques for Gift Aided Envelope monies should be made out to “MCF” (Masonic Charitable Foundation) and to the benefit of relief Chest “E0110”, which is the Provincial Chapter Relief Chest.
Sending your donations via David so that the appeal amount can be recorded will ensure the appeal amount is correct, send to:-
D. Wood, Four Boys, Peacock Close, Shanklin, Isle of Wight, PO37 6NB Tel: 07973 685198
If Companions pay income tax, and donate via gift aid envelopes, please remind them to tick the box that allows gift aid tax to be claimed from the tax system as it increases their donation by 25% at no cost to themselves.
