This includes TALENT AID that helps to support children and young people from Masonic families who are exceptionally gifted music, sport or the performing arts.
Children with no Masonic connection are assisted by STEPPING STONES that provides grants to other charities and LIFELITES that provides computer technology packages for children
and young people in hospices.
