We are frequently asked – "Why should I become a freemason".
Below are a number of answers, identified by our members, as being some of the reasons they joined.
Freemasonry gives me an opportunity to help others, it challenges me and creates greater personal confidence.
I am proud to belong to the oldest non secular organisation in the world.
I appreciate being part of an organisation that has over 7 million members worldwide.
I feel great satisfaction in being part of an organisation that donates over £44 million each year in England and Wales to charities and good causes, it is enjoyable to be part of a local group of like minded people.
I enjoy being part of monthly entertaining meetings and appreciate the standard philosophy of advancement each year within the lodge.
I get great satisfaction in helping our local community.
I like the idea of progressing by "degrees" so I have a target to aim for.
I love the historical significance of being part of an organisation with over 300 years of tradition andI enjoy the camaraderie of the whole organisation.
I look forward to learning a little more at every meeting.
I like the idea of having a meal following our meetings where discussion and laughter prevails.
Freemasonry membership is open to everyone over the age of 21years, the organisation enables me to play an active part, whatever my age.
The implications of the ritual are so thought provoking.
Being a member is self rewarding for the more effort I put into freemasonry the more I appreciate it and get out of it.
My father/family member/friend recommended it and persuaded me to join, perhaps the best advice I have ever received.

A fundamental part of Freemasonry is Charity and Andresey Lodge is proud of its efforts in raising funds to help, Masonic, non Masonic, national and local charities and good causes.
Every 12 years or so the Provincial Grand Lodge of Staffordshire agrees to host "A Festival" where each lodge is requested to raise funds so that a collective donation can be made for charitable purposes. Our current Festival in 2024 aims to raise over £2,000,000.
In addition to monies raised for "The Festival" the lodge also makes donations directly to local appeals and charities. St Giles Hospice being a regular recipient of our fund raising efforts. In addition donations have been given to, The National Memorial Arboretum, The Queens Hospital, a defibrillator for The Octagon Shopping Centre, The Stroke Club, YMCA, Derby Kids Camp, Dyslexia Institute, the Tsunami Appeal. the Donna Louise Trust, Bessie Brown Home, St Modwens Church, Hillfield Home, Horace Pritchard House, The Heart Association, Abbots Bromley Carers Centre, Aspergers Group, The Queens Hospital Echo Appeal, The Queens Hospital Scanner Appeal, Burton War Memorial Fund, A Plus Self Help Group, A Plus Carers Group, Cares Centre, Macmillan Nurses Cancer Relief.
Hospital Teddy Bear Scheme (TLC) - The Province buys from donations received from all lodges Teddy Bears. These Teddy Bears are given to A & E Departments at Staffordshire hospitals, so that hospital staff can give to any child entering hospital in a distressed state, the comfort of the gift of a new Teddy Bear.
