Since the Foundations establishment in 2004, we have supported Scottish Freemasons and the work of charitable and not-for-profit community groups across the State.
The shock and grief of the devastating Black Saturday Bushfires that swept Victoria in February 2009 was felt by Australians around the globe.
The fires which burned over 4,500km in Victoria during some of the worst bushfire conditions ever resulted in 173 losing their lives, Australia'a highest ever loss of life from bushfires. Over 2,000 homes were destroyed in Melbourne's north-east in the fires that affect over 51 individual townships and left over 7,500 people homeless.
Members of the Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation of WA, individual Scottish lodges, Grand Lodge of Western Australia, The Supreme Grand Royal Arch Chapter and The District Grand Royal Arch Chapter raised over $120,000 to help support those who lost loved ones, homes and livelihoods in the devastating fires.
The Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation of WA was proud to sponsor the "Mountains High Jersey" in this year's Red Sky Ride which raised over $290,000.00 for the SolarisCare Foundation.
The Red Sky Ride not only test the endurance and commitment of the riders but it also helps to increase the awareness in the wider community of the SolarisCare Foundation - Cancer Support Centres and the importance, of physical and emotional wellbeing and the link to quality of life.
Each year the ride is dedicated to someone special who has lost their fight with Cancer, the 2009 ride was dedicated to the memory of Rachel Sarah Mann (1971-2008).
