The Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons and the Mark Benevolent Fund are proud to have a longstanding relationship with the Order of St John and St John Ambulance. At the turn of the Millennium, the fund provided a significant contribution to help replace the organisation’s fleet of ambulance vehicles.
These vehicles have served beyond the call of duty over the last 17 years however, technology and innovation in the world of medical health care has progressed at a phenomenal pace during this time. Once gain the Mark Benevolent Fund has joined in partnership with the charity and pledged £3,023,700 enabling a two year programme providing up to 52 replacement state of the art ambulances and support vehicles.
Local communities around the country will continue to benefit from the services of St John Ambulance who can sometimes be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
Our latest donation marks the 140th anniversary of St John Ambulance in 2017 and the 150th anniversary of the Mark Benevolent Fund in 2018.
