The Masonic Charitable Foundation has donated £20,000 to St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston to support its Make Do and Mend project, aimed at giving bereaved people a chance to get out of the house and mend furniture

Jo Blake, head of clinical services at the hospice, explained: ‘Often we get donated items that may need a bit of work done on them. The money will be spent on developing a workshop in the warehouse where this can be done by bereaved family members.

‘It will give bereaved people an opportunity to get out of the house and talk with others who know what they are experiencing, whilst at the same time engaging in something constructive.’
