The three great principles by which we operate are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Freemasons are taught to practice charity and assistance, not only for themselves but also for the community as a whole. From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with taking care of those in need. This work still continues today.
For the past 3 years Pace et Harmonium have organised the ‘Fred Hurley Golf Day’ each December in memory of this Masonic brother in aid of his favourite Charity ‘Riding for the Disabled’ at Barlavento, Lagos. The photo shows our current Master Paul Tremlett in February 2015, presenting a cheque for 2.000,00 € on behalf of the Lodge.
In March at the WM Paul Tremlett’s ‘Ladies Night’ and at our regular meeting, 870€ was raised to cover the cost of a prosthetic leg for Dona Maria Alberta Santos, a family friend of one of the members. Dona Maria had been confined to a wheelchair for nearly 2 years and can be seen here in the photo with her new leg which was fitted on the 29th May 2015.
