Tercentenary 2028 Appeal

In 2028 the Province of Warwickshire will be celebrating its 300-year anniversary. In the lead up to this momentous occasion, a number of key strategic activities are planned. The most significant of the provincial Grand Master’s chosen charity, Fisher House.

Fisher House offers a home away from home for injured military personnel, many of whom served in Iraq and Afghanistan and continue to return to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for more surgery, and personnel who are receiving treatment for illness – from cancer care to transplants. Guests have described Fisher House as ‘one big hug’ and ‘a place that takes away all your problems’. It costs the charity £40 a night to host a military family in their time of need. 

"I have chosen Fisher House as the tercentenary charity as it's work supporting military personnel, veterans, their families and loved ones whilst being treated at the Royal Centre of Defence Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham is both inspirational and in line with the Province's commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.I have spoken to both military patients and their families and the key ingredient for their recovery from life changing injuries is the knowledge and reassurance that their family are at close at hand and are well looked after.I am asking for your individual and collective support for this charity which cares for military personnel and their families who have made physical and mental sacrifices in order to keep us all safe. Regular information on the work of Fisher House will be provided to each individual Brother leading up to the culmination of our celebrations in 2028."
