Freemasons Concord-Ryde team up with Vinnies

14 May 24

NSW Freemasons in Leichhardt and Concord West started the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Hamper Charity Drive about 40 years ago and have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Christmas hampers to families in need.

District 24 inherited this legacy, and the most recent charity drive was conducted in 2019 because of Covid.

We are proud to announce that District 24 has come back strong with the 2023 St Vincent de Paul Christmas Hamper Charity Drive.

Thanks to D24 MAS candidates, brethren and families, 220 hampers were distributed representing a donation of $12,105.

Special thanks are due to the following:

 Bro Troy Carr for liaising with Woolworths for the actual supply of the Christmas hampers.

 VW Bro Gerald Nicholls for organising the whole event.

The St Vincent de Paul members who helped pack and distribute the hampers.

Special mention to Gerry Modini from St Vincent de Paul who organised such a great response from his colleagues.

And finally, all the lodges in District24

  • The Leichhardt Lodge 133,
  • Lodge Horace Thompson Ryde 134,
  • Lodge Chelmsford Technology 261,
