Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal organisations and comprises a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. For many years Freemasons have followed three guiding principles, which they believe represent a way to achieve higher standards in life:
The qualities of kindness, understanding, tolerance and respect for the opinions of others.
Charitable giving and activities to assist the welfare of Freemasons and the community as a whole
Aiming for a high moral standard.

“Our aim at Sanctuary is to be one of a number of ‘first point of contacts’ to those who are homeless irrespective of situation or background, with a focus on providing assistance not catered by other agencies.
Our main focus is on providing a winter shelter between the months of November – March, where we provide our guests with a hot meal, showers and a safe, warm place to sleep 7 nights a week. We also help out with paper work and liaison with other charities and statutory bodies who can help them get back to living a more normal life.
None of this would have been possible without the support of our partners and our 150+ volunteers”.
