Members The University Lodge of Liverpool may not have been able to meet for the best part of a year however that does not mean that they have been just waiting around for meetings to start again. Once the lockdown became apparent – as we have already said before – members started out to help and support anyone less fortunate who wanted assistance.
Lockdown no.2 saw a similar response from members to support people across Merseyside and West Lancashire through food banks. ULOL members rallied round and we managed to send two carloads of non-perishable items to a central collection point in Garston to swell the amount being given.
As Christmas approached we were aware that due to the various lockdowns many elderly residents of residential and care homes were missing out on family contact so again members rallied round and together we bought, made or sent 320 cards, one to each resident of the six major Homes in the Liverpool area including the Tithebarn Masonic Home in Crosby.
Once again ULoL has demonstrated that active charity has a major place in what we do and how we are a part of the communities in which we live.
