Freemasons support for East Lancashire Hospice

Since 1984 hospices in England and Wales have received £12.3 million from masonic charities.

The central masonic charity, the Masonic Charitable Foundation provides grants to around 240 hospices which provide palliative care to children and adults in England and Wales.

The hospices receive less than 60 per cent of their funding from the NHS to support more than 200,000 people with terminal or life-limiting conditions each year, and to provide bereavement support to more than 40,000 family members.

Freemasons in the East Ribble District passionately support the East Lancashire Hospice from providing donations to keep the drinks trolley well stocked to volunteering at the 10K run, Memories Walk and more recently at the Christmas Fayre. Recently the Masonic Charitable Foundation gave a donation of £1,900 to help the Hospice further.
