The Lodge of Connaught & Truth No. 521

The Universities Scheme Lodge for Huddersfield

Freemasonry is one of the oldest secular social and charitable organisations in the world.

Modern Freemasonryís roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our castles and cathedrals. For Freemasons, there are four important values that help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Service. In todayís world filled with uncertainty, these principles ring as true now as they have at any point in the organisationís history.

Membership is open to men over 18 from all backgrounds and the organisationís aim is to empower members to be the best they can be Ė itís about building character, supporting members as individuals and helping them make a positive contribution to society. Freemasonry provides a structure for members to come together under these common goals, enabling people to make new friendships, develop themselves and make valuable contributions to charitable causes. We are one of the largest charitable givers in the country, contributing over £50m to deserving causes in 2023.
