Pendleside Hospice is presented with an award of £2,443. This generous donation was made by The Freemasons’ Grand Charity, an organisation that distributes money raised by Freemasons and their families to support people in need.
The grant will help Pendleside Hospice to continue providing free physical, emotional and spiritual care to patients and their families. Nationally The Grand Charity has this year donated £600,000 to 239 Adult and Children’s Hospices across England and Wales.
Paul Thornton, Burnley & Pendle District Chairman, said: “Hospices play a vital role in helping the individuals and families affected by terminal and life limiting illnesses. I am delighted that the grants from the Freemasons’ Grand Charity will, in addition to funds raised by local Masons, help to run these excellent local services that rely on voluntary and charitable support to fund their work”
Christina Cope, Fundraising Manager at the Hospice said “This is a very generous gesture from the Masonic Grand Charity and all the Masons throughout the country who support the work of the Hospice Movement. Nationally , we are very grateful to them every year for their continued support”
