The Companions carry out a variety of regular charitable, religious and social activities all over Scotland.


We carry out a range of regular charitable activities in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth & Kinross, North Lanarkshire and the Borders. These include helping at soup kitchens; hosting tea parties and dances for the marginalised; visiting those living in sheltered housing, old people’s homes and children’s hospices to provide companionship, and more.

Twice a year we deliver clothing and toiletries parcels at Easter and Christmas (approx. 1000 parcels annually) to nearly all parts of Scotland. 

We also have four student volunteer groups at Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, Edinburgh and Aberdeen Universities.


February: Mass and a social meet-up on Companions’ Day

April: Knights of Malta Ball

June: Day of Recollection

September: Investiture Mass & Reception

November: Requiem Mass

There are also many events and volunteering opportunities in London, at which Scottish Companions are welcome.


You can keep up with current events through our twice-yearly Scottish newsletter, the monthly UK newsletter (Limelight), and our Facebook page (Companions of the Order of Malta – Scotland).

Please get in touch with Thomas Steuart Fothringham (Convener of the Companions in Scotland) if you’re interested in helping out in your local area or learning more about the Companions.
