St Luke’s Hospice has been chosen to receive a grant of £2,095 from Yorkshire Freemasons.
The grant from The Provincial Grand Lodge of Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF).
This is just one of 218 grants to hospices around the country from Freemasons. In total £750,000 will be donated to hospices all over England and Wales this year.
This includes £300,000 which will be distributed to each hospice that receives less than 60 per cent funding from the NHS.
A further £450,000 will be provided to individual hospices across England and Wales via Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice care.
MCF is partnering with Hospice UK to widening access and address barriers to local hospice services for local people who are homeless or have learning disabilities.
Contributions from Freemasons to hospices have exceeded £13 million in England and Wales since 1984.
St Luke’s Senior Fundraising Manager Joasia Lesniak said: “We’re very grateful to Yorkshire’s Freemasons for their generous grant.”
