On 7th of June 2023, The United Grand Lodge of Queensland together with Hand Heart Pocket formally presented Legacy Brisbane with a donation of $5000.00 as part of the 2023 “Lest We Forget” Lapel Pins fundraising initiative by the Grand Secretariat Team.
Due to the resounding success of the limited edition 2022 Square and Compass Poppy Pin, The Grand Secretariat Initiative was expanded into a formal fundraising initiative and the decision was taken to partner with Legacy Brisbane and Hand Heart Pocket through its Matched Giving program.
Legacy is an iconic Australian charity dedicated to supporting the families of our veterans. Their vision is for no spouse or child of a veteran to suffer financial or social disadvantage as a result of their loved one’s death or injury from recognised military service.
The Masonic Memorial Centre being the home of the United Grand Lodge of Queensland in Brisbane and one of only two Masonic Memorial Centres in the world (the other being United Grand Lodge of England - UGLE), there was no more apt charity to partner with.
We would like to thank all the Brethren and Lodges who supported and continue to support this initiative.
