The Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys has relaunched its website – www.rmtgb.org – to provide accurate and up-to-date information about its work to Freemasons, their families and the public.
The new website features the latest news from the Trust and includes detailed information about the charitable assistance available to the children and grandchildren of Freemasons who have suffered a distress which has led to financial hardship.
Grants from the Trust's TalentAid scheme for young people with exceptional talent in sport, music or the performing arts are also explained together with the assistance available for those wishing to embrace other life-changing opportunities.
Schemes to support children and young people without a Masonic connection also feature prominently including Stepping Stones, which awards grants to local and national children's charities and the Choral Bursary scheme which supports choristers at cathedrals across England and Wales.
The wealth of information contained on the website makes it a useful resource for Charity Stewards, Almoners and other Freemasons as well as those thinking about applying for support.
For Freemasons wishing to support the charity, there are details about donating and fundraising, including dedicated pages for each current Festival Appeal being held in support of the Trust.
Mike Woodcock, President of the Trust, said:
"Our new website provides an excellent link between the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, the Freemasons who support our work and those who are seeking our help.
"I encourage everyone to visit our new website to find out about a little more about our life-changing work."
The new website can be found at www.rmtgb.org and will be regularly updated with news, features and other information.
As well as the new website, the Trust has further increased its online presence by establishing Twitter and Facebook pages to reach out to the growing Masonic community which already uses these social media platforms.
