Jacob’s Ladder - Swansea Masonic Lift Appeal

A message from the President

I wish to introduce you to ‘Jacob’s Ladder’, a ‘Lift for You.’

The one facility our magnificent Masonic Hall is lacking is good access to the upper floors for those of us who are less able.

The aim of the Jacob’s Ladder Committee, will be to raise sufficient funds to install and commission a fully operational elevator and associated platform lifts which will convey Brethren from the ground floor to first floor and also assist with wheelchair access to the main entrance and the stairs leading to the Major Temple.

The estimated time frame for this project is of course dependent upon the success of our fund raising, but is estimated to be within 3 years.

Initial studies indicate that a figure in the region of £75,000.00 will be necessary to deliver a successful outcome to this project and therefore we clearly have some challenging fund raising ahead. As you know, the only way to fund such a project is from within, and, in so doing we will be able to provide an access facility that we can all be justly proud of and one which future generations of Freemasons will be able to use regardless of age or physical capability.

As President of this very worthy cause, it is my belief that we will only deliver a successful outcome to this project if we have the support of every lodge and their respective members.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation and support.
