Essex is the fourth largest province in England and Wales with more than 300 Lodges and 11,600 members. In Essex there is a very special charity called ´Teddies for Loving Care´ which provides a constant supply of colourful Teddy Bears to all Accident and Emergency units throughout the county. This scheme was started in March 2001 and has now spread to 34 Masonic Provinces in England and Wales. To-date we have donated over 1 Million teddies to sick and injured children.
