Big hearted Freemasons have given our hospice a £3,000 boost.
The money has been donated to our hospice in Balby and is from The Mark Benevolent Fund, founded in 1868, which is the official charity of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons. It is part of a £1.3 million donation from the Freemasons nationally to more than 250 hospices in the UK to celebrate the life of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The money will be used to support our patients who use either the day hospice or the inpatient service.
Jim Stanley, representing the Mark Benevolent Fund, said: “We chose St John’s Hospice as we know people who have used the service and know how excellent it is. It is such a worthwhile cause.”
Tracey Gaughan, from the hospice’s fundraising team, said: “I want to thank the Freemasons so much for this very very kind donation. Every penny we receive is used to either support our patients or to make their lives more comfortable while they are using our services.”
