Recently, a meeting was held, between representatives of Local Freemason’s Lodge Hiram Abif number 80 and the director of Nazaret College. Sr Leoncio Calvo.
The visit to the Nazareth School was the result of the Provincial Grand Master’s decision to donate five hundred euros to this school and to highlight the sincere gratitude of the school director for the donation and the interest of our order in the work that the Nazareth School carries out for the benefit of the children and adolescents of Alicante who need support and help.
Nazareth College was one of the four charities identified by the Provincial Grand Master, RWBro Rodney Bignell, to receive donations of money raised at the Provincial Golf Tournament at Bonalba Golf Club in June. We subsequently sent them five hundred euros and this visit was to follow up and find out more about them, with future support from the lodge in mind.
In attendance were the Worshipful Master of the RLS Hiram Abif 80, WBro Vicente López Revuelta, the Worshipful Master-elect Bro Jorge Prieto Cueto and Bro Sergio Pereira, Charity Steward of the same lodge.
In a very pleasant talk, we were given a complete tour of the school’s facilities, together with a summary of its history. He described the main activities they carry out for the benefit of children and adolescents at risk of social exclusion in the province.
We had the opportunity to witness the work they do at different levels and in the training courses for the children.
We also had the opportunity to briefly explain the support work that our Order carries out through the Provincial Grand Lodge of Valencia and its lodges for the benefit of the community and that we hope to continue in the future, in order to help the children of the school in their different initiatives.
We agreed to keep in touch to be attentive to any specific needs that they may have and that in some way we can help to alleviate.
