When I first heard of the idea of a charity walk for the Mark Benevolent Fund I thought that the target of £100,000 was rather ambitious. However, the Brethren of the Mark degree had other ideas and at the time of writing the online figure stands at £329,000 with much more to come I feel sure.
To see so many of you in the Grand Temple at Mark Masons’ Hall on Saturday is a true testament to the generosity and camaraderie of a Mark Master Mason and such a gathering of Mark Masons from almost every Province in England and Wales is undoubtedly unique in the history of our Order.
The day was a resounding success and my thanks go to all involved in putting it together. My thanks go also to each and every one of you who took the time to be part of such an historic event.
Saturday, 6 May 2017 was indeed a most memorable day which in many ways would be impossible to repeat. Mark well.
Pro Grand Master
