Long-serving member of staff retires
W Bro Keith Hulks PAGStB, retired in September 2006 having served for 44 years in Great Queen Street. Keith began his career in August 1962 at the Royal Masonic Institution for Boys as a junior, rising to the post of Head of Petitions in that organisation.
    With the amalgamation of the former charities with the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys he eventually moved into the Festival Department, latterly serving as Festivals Manager. He has attended, and been involved in, the arrangements for 44 Festivals.
    His last Festival was on 20 May 2006 in the Province of Yorkshire, North and East Ridings when the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro Richard Anderson, called him up and presented him with a citation recording his 44 years service.
    Members of Council and colleagues at the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys join with the President, VW Bro Andrew Stebbings, in wishing Keith a long and happy retirement.

New RMTGB web site
In July 2006, the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys launched its new website.
    It can be found at www.rmtgb.org.
    The new site, which incorporates the Trustís new logo, is easy to use and contains a wealth of information about the support available and about the most effective ways of giving to the charity.
    Various forms and information sheets are available to download from the site, together with the latest and previous editions of the Annual Review. You will also find useful information about forthcoming Festivals, detailed records of fund-raising achievements and have access to an interesting photograph archive of the former Institutions.
    The Trust is the largest educational grant-making trust in the United Kingdom and, above all, the site shows the enormous breadth of the work undertaken by the Trust and its subsidiary charities, including maintenance grants to poorer Masonic children, university scholarships, travel grants, student accommodation, bursaries for cathedral choristers and support for the gifted children of Masonic families.
    Please take time to visit the site and see the regular updates on how the Trust is fulfilling its mission.
