The excellent work done by St Michael’s Hospice, near Hereford, is recognised by everyone around the county. The care they provide for those with life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers, is of huge value, and it is reassuring to know that such a facility is available should we ever need it.
As is true of hospices throughout the country, St Michael’s is entirely dependent on voluntary support for its income, especially through fundraising and legacies. The Masonic Charitable Foundation has been providing financial support for hospices since 1984, and in the Province of Herefordshire, they were delighted to have been able to help our local hospice over a number of years.
The most recent grant from the Province is a sum of £1,780, which was presented in January 2019. Receiving a certificate marking this latest support, the Director of Income & Marketing at the Hospice, Ruth Denison, warmly thanked the Freemasons of Herefordshire, adding that the money would be directed toward an ongoing project to enhance further the outpatient facilities at the Hospice.
