This was but one of the 237 grants totalling some £600,000 given to Hospices across England and Wales.

On behalf of the Hospice, Chief executive, Eamonn O’Neal said: “We’re enormously grateful for the support of the East Lancashire Freemasons, and we’re thrilled that they have chosen us to receive this grant. It will make a real difference to the lives of local patients and their loved ones.”
