Charities Supported

Where do we start with this? There are many charities that deserve the support of the members, from the Minor Lodges, to PGL's, Knights Chapters, ROH assemblies and the national appeal under the Grand Primo.

The Grand total donated since 1967 to this year is £3,667,051.65

Since the order began, we have given to charity in a big way, from the 1 or 2 pennies is years gone by the many tens of thousands we now see as the norm, the number of appeals that go on during each and every year is far too many to list here, but we will list the recent appeals supported, starting with the Grand Primo's.

In 2022 we are all aware that a War broke out in the Ukraine. We in the RAOB GLE decided to assist the people of Ukraine and raise a small amount to assist them in their hour of need.

A call went out to the Membership and within a few months a total of £23,344.00 was raised.

The Grand Primo 2022 kept his promise and looked into a way to assist the people of Ukraine and found a UK registered charity called Kiddo Kids who work in tandem with a Ukranian organisation who purchase and fit out ambulances with medical supplies and equipment.
