To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England, Freemasons nominated 300 local charities to receive a share of three million pounds.

People were invited to vote for the charity they thought deserved support.

Depending on the number of votes received, each charity will receive a grant of between £4,000 and £25,000.

The results are in and a total of £79,000 will be awarded to eight charities in East Kent.
