Not even a worldwide pandemic could stop us from celebrating friendship this year, as part of our annual Friendship Month campaign.

Through a mix of online and face-to-face events, our branches truly showed the world how we can continue to connect, no matter what life throws our way.

Find out more about how we celebrated Oddfellows Friendship Month across the UK in 2020.

Nobody who wants company should be without it

We share Campaign to End Loneliness' belief that nobody who wants company should be without it. More than nine million people of all ages say they are lonely either often or always, according to research by The Co-op and the British Red Cross.

We foster a culture of looking out for our neighbours, and do what we can to make sure people feel valued and included. The Oddfellows is here for everyone, of all ages and walks of life.
