Suffolk Freemason Embarks on Grand Tour

In a remarkable initiative to raise funds for Suffolk Festival 2029, Freemason Rob Bamberger has embarked on a solo journey to visit at least one Lodge in every single Province across the country. Rob’s journey began in Oxfordshire on 19 January and the generosity he encountered there set a promising tone for the rest of his adventure.

Carfax Lodge, No. 5723, not only welcomed Rob warmly, but also made a substantial donation of £500 to support the Suffolk Festival. The generosity did not stop there, as the entire Province of Oxfordshire contributed a further £250 towards the cause, demonstrating the commitment and solidarity of the Masonic community towards the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF, the Freemasons’ Charity).

The fantastic donations have provided a strong foundation for Rob’s journey, providing him with motivation as he moves on to the next Province on his itinerary – Buckinghamshire.

The success of this fundraising tour will not only bring valuable financial support to the Suffolk Festival 2029 but will also further strengthen the bonds between Provinces.

Suffolk Festival Chairman Jon Neill commented: 

‘The support we have received from Oxfordshire for the Suffolk 2029 Festival has been truly astounding. Rob’s dedication and willingness to travel the length and breadth of the UK to promote our Festival and the MCF is commendable. I wish him the best of luck. If he receives the same warm reception from other Provinces, his journey will undoubtedly be a memorable one.’
