Friends of Shannon Court – Freemasonry in action.

RMBI Care Home in Surrey.

The Association of the Friends of Shannon Court was formed in 1994 from a group of local Freemasons in the Province of Surrey to provide extra funds and comfort for the benefit of the residents and help towards the general upkeep of Shannon Court.

It encourages Lodges and individual Freemasons in Surrey to participate in fund raising by a number of ways – become a friend, the 300 Club or by becoming a Patron of Shannon Court.

Throughout the year a number of events and activities are organised for Freemasons and their families to help raise funds for the benefit of residents in the home.

Additional social, sports and entertainment are also arranged by the Friends of Shannon Court.
