Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler’s Charities for 2018/19
Following a change last year, our Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, David Littlewood, invited Conclaves in rotation to submit proposed Charities to receive a donation from the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler’s Charity Fund.
North Wales Super Kids

This growing charity offers several projects to help disadvantaged children and young people throughout North Wales.
For example, this year’s Toy Box Appeal supported 1616 young people throughout the area by giving them a parcel of Christmas presents, where they would not have received anything for Christmas. Work is already underway to provide a similar level of support for 2019.
Another incentive, the Holiday Project, provides static caravan holidays for young people and their families. The caravan, based in Hafan y More, Pwllheli, following the donation of £2,000 presented by the OSM members, will now be connected and ready for occupation from March.
Margaret Williams, founder of the charity, said she was delighted to receive the support from the local Freemasons, and looked forward to opening the refurbished caravan for business in the very near future.
David Littlewood, Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler of the OSM, said he was pleased to see the new system of referral working, and was happy for the Order to support such a deserving charity, who do such wonderful work throughout the North Wales area.
