Fifteen million breakfasts for underprivileged children and three million meals provided in response to the pandemic have been made possible by His Church in Brookenby near Market Rasen.
The work of the church has been backed by a £1,000 donation from the Horncastle-based Round Table Lodge of Lincolnshire. It will support church members’ efforts to redistribute essential food and supplies to members of the community who are experiencing times of hardship and crisis.
Operations Director Richard Humphrey said: “In the UK, we have delivered 15 million servings of breakfast cereal to under privileged children through Kellogg’s ‘Help Give A Child A Breakfast’ campaign. We have also re-distributed more than three million meals in response to the Covid-19 crisis.”
Members of the Lodge were treated to an inspirational insight to the Charity’s growing work by founder and President of His Church, Trevor Cockings MBE. Members of the Lodge said how much they were impressed by the hard work and enthusiasm which His Church brought to finding charitable solutions for residual stock from supermarkets and manufacturers.
Few organisations give more to charity than Freemasonry – and all the money comes from Freemasons themselves. The His Church donation was from the Lincolnshire Provincial Benevolent Fund with additional ‘match funding’ from the Freemasons Charity, the Masonic Charitable Foundation.
