Message from the WMCA

Brethren,


I would like to inform you that W Bro Francis Jephcott has retired as a trustee of the Warwickshire Masonic Charitable Association and its Investment Committee after 30 years of dedicated service.


W Bro Francis Jephcott MBE PSGD is a Past Assistant Provincial Grand Master for Warwickshire. As a retired Stockbroker and Past President of the Birmingham Stock Exchange his skills in managing the financial concerns of the WMCA have been invaluable over 3 decades.

At a meeting of the trustees, on the 24th October 2019, the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro David Macey presented Francis with a suitable retirement gift and commented,


 “The WMCA and all the brethren of Warwickshire owe W Bro Francis a huge debt of gratitude for all his hard work and commitment. His knowledge as a stock broker has been invaluable in ensuring that our investments have remained strong. The dividends those investments have paid have allowed us to support non masonic charities, in the province, for over 30 years. Last year those charities received over £150,000, and a further £100,000 was donated to the 2023 Festival for the Masonic Charitable Foundation. Francis your legacy is fantastic and assured within Warwickshire, to which I add my personal gratitude and thanks.”

W Bro Geoff Walker
