Charity description

The Cleeves and Whitehead Trust logo
The Cleeves and Whitehead Trust is the charity of the Mark Masons of West Yorkshire, whose objects are:
  • The relief of past and present Mark Master Masons of the Province and their relatives or dependants, who are in need, hardship or distress.
  • To support such charities, charitable institutions and charitable purposes as The Trustees see fit.
Formed in 2005 following the merger of the Trust and the West Yorkshire Mark Benevolent Fund, it is named after two prominent former Past Provincial Grand Masters and relies mainly on the generosity of Mark Masons and their families in West Yorkshire. 

The MBF Festival system is the primary source of income for our national Mark charity, the Mark Benevolent Fund.  Each year a Mark Province takes its turn to start their seven year run to a Festival celebration.  During this period, the majority of the Province's fundraising is for the benefit of the MBF.

As an ongoing system, each year, a different Province will also complete its Festival and in 2018 The Province of  Lincolnshire will be celebrating the conclusion of their Festival period.

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

On April 2nd 2016 the Mark Province of West Yorkshire began its Festival for the benefit of the Mark Benevolent Fund (The MBF).

This Festival will run until 2023 and the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro James Steggles along with the Festival Chairman, VW Bro Richard B Puttrell, hope that all Mark Masons of our Province will join them in supporting and creating fundraising events.

This MyDonate portal is just one way in which the Mark Masons of West Yorkshire can make donations to support specific events promoted by the Province.

Additionally individuals can set up fundraiser pages on behalf of a Lodge or group and link them to this MyDonate page so that any donations are paid directly to the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust.  Best of all, where appropriate, Gift Aid is claimed on behalf of the Trust as part of the process.

The Chairman and the Trustees of the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust would like to confirm to the Mark Masons of West Yorkshire, that the Trust is able to discharge its current responsibilities in the Province, during this period of fundraising for the MBF. 

Please donate to support our cause.
