I'm delighted to announce that Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has been shortlisted to the final stages of the Masonic Samaritan Fund Silver Jubilee Research Fund vote, for a chance to be awarded a grant of £100,000. Our research project, 'Turning a measles virus into a leukaemia killer' is one of five projects under consideration for an MSF research grant.

To mark 25 years of generous donations from Freemasons and their families, the Masonic Samaritan Fund (MSF) is donating a total of £1 million in grants nationally to medical research projects in its anniversary year.

MSF’s Grants Director and Deputy Chief Executive John McCrohan said: “Since 2011, the MSF has supported medical research projects which aim to improve the prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment available for many of the illnesses and disabilities that affect Masonic families and the wider community.

“The £1 million Silver Jubilee Research Fund identifies and celebrates the fantastic research that charities in England and Wales successfully deliver, and our rigorous judging process ensures that only the very best research presented to us make it to the final shortlist. We wish Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research the very best of luck during our nomination process.'

The MSF has invited Freemasons from the Provinces of Cheshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire, North Wales, South Wales, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire to nominate one proposal from the shortlist of five research projects

Freemasons can vote for us by visiting the Fund’s website. Only Freemasons, or their widows, are invited to nominate a research project and they are required to provide some membership information in order for their vote to be verified and registered.

Thank you and warm wishes,

Natasha, Trust Fundraising Manager
