Before Covid-19 came to the UK, Bristol’s Masons had set up a collection ‘basket’ for donated foods, toiletries and other essentials in the foyer of Freemasons Hall. It was for The Matthew Tree Project (TMTP), a locally based charity supporting individuals and families in crisis and suffering food poverty. Donations rapidly increased, a volunteer ‘Mason-with-a-van’ volunteered to deliver the donated goods to the charity, and then volunteered to work for the charity!

More than 100 people have died, despite a mass evacuation in advance, tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and power has been cut off in many regions. There has been massive damage to roads, bridges and other essential infrastructure, and many villages have been flooded or cut off.
