FREEMASONS have been dedicated to helping the community of Liverpool for more than 140 years.

Liverpool Lodge member Tony George said that assisting the community and its charities was a core value of the Freemasons.

"Freemasonry is an organisation that tries to promote moral and personal development," Mr George said.

"The values we have include caring, helping and practising charity to those who are in need."

He said Freemasonry lodges across NSW had donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity.

"Lodge Liverpool, alongside lodges within the district, have been actively working to raise money for the Cancer Council," he said. "For the past six years, we have been active participants in the Run for Life campaign for those who are suffering or are survivors of cancer.

"We also assisted in raising money to assist a young wrestler to attend the last Olympic Games."

Mr George has been a member for about 10 years.

"I was looking for an organisation that would accept good men and make them into better men," he said. "I wanted to be be part of an organisation that does provide charity to those who are in need.

"New members usually make inquiries either directly through lodge Liverpool or by contacting the grand lodge.

"If anyone is interested they can contact me on 0425 239 570."
