Freemasons across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight swung behind the inaugural NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day by displaying banners at their centres.
The United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), the governing body for Freemasons, invited its 200,000 members to fly the specially designed flags at 10am on 5 July.
The day is dedicated to the NHS, social care and front line workers who have saved so many lives during the pandemic. It is also a day to remember those workers who died.
The UGLE is one of the core supporters of the day, alongside the Cadet Forces, English Heritage and the Women’s Institute.
A £5 donation from every flag and length of bunting made will be equally divided between NHS Charities Together and the National Care Association.
