The Commandery of Avalon was founded in 1988 as the only Commandery in the West Country. It is one of the oldest and, after re-organisation, it now covers Devon and Cornwall. Business meetings, social events and church services are held each year at a variety of venues.
In its relatively short life, the Commandery has raised many thousands of pounds and contributed both equipment and substantial donations to a number of charities in the area, nationally and overseas. In line with the Order's historical commitment to aiding sufferers from leprosy and skin diseases, we make regular donations to LEPRA.
We have also made grants to clinics and other projects in distressed areas of Europe, Africa and India, with a strong emphasis on children's work.
The charitable funds and reserves are administered by our associated trust, The Avalon Charitable Trust (Registered Charity No. 01017486)
