Our hospice in Little Hulton has been chosen to receive a grant of £1,682 from East Lancashire Freemasons to help fund our care for local patients.

The generous grant from East Lancashire Freemasons comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF), and is just one of 237 grants to hospices around the country from Freemasons. In total £600,000 will be donated to hospices all over England and Wales this year.

Contributions from Freemasons to hospices have exceeded £13 million in England and Wales since 1984 and are continuing to increase at a rate of £600,000 a year.
