Speaking about the donations Graham Ives the Provincial Grand Master for

“Freemasons in Lincolnshire are thrilled that The Freemasons’ Grand Charity has continued to provide this vital funding for our local hospices. The care, compassion and support they provide to the community is outstanding and we are also delighted that we were able to show our continuing dedication to their cause by means of a further donation from our Provincial funds.”

Financial support is crucial for ensuring a continued high quality service in hospices and every year Freemasons all over the country work together to provide funding for hospice services.
