Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution
Freemasons from across Surrey have been raising money over the past five years dependents raise £3.25 million for the RMBI Festival.
The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution (RMBI) has been caring for older Freemasons and their dependants for over 160 years. It operates seventeen care homes across England and Wales which provide residential, nursing, respite and dementia care for elderly Freemasons and their dependants.
Finally, for those individuals in receipt of Masonic financial assistance, the RMBI organises annual holidays for over 100 people and provides home improvement loans.
