Freemasonry in London

Fundraising for London’s Air Ambulance.

London´s Freemasons have made a commitment to raise £3 million to ensure that London’s Air Ambulance have their two new state-of-the-art Airbus helicopters built, equipped and flying; and the crews fully trained, by October 2024. £15 million is needed to achieve this goal and we are, once again, LAA’s biggest donor. LAA openly refer to us as their ‘Cornerstone Donor’, the one group that they can rely on to go the extra mile. So far, £1 million has been raised-which is on target-but we need to up the pace and to encourage Lodges and Chapters to access their Relief Chests and charity accounts and to consider staging fundraising events. Bro Matthew Wood, is running the London Marathon to raise funds, which is already impressive, but is doing so in a helicopter costume! He intends to set a Guinness world record for the fastest time in a 3D aircraft.
