Hospice in the Weald are very pleased to have received a special donation from the Freemasons in memory of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Mark Benevolent Fund is the official charity of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons, a masonic organisation based at Mark Masons’ Hall in London.
The grants totalling £11,000 have been made as part of a £1.3 million wider grant distributed to more than 250 Hospices across England and Wales to celebrate the life of the Duke, himself a Freemason, who died in April.
Each individual lodge was able to nominate a Hospice to support through this grant and Hospice in the Weald was lucky enough to receive the support of 6 lodges across West Kent and 5 lodges in East Sussex.
Hospice in the Weald was delighted to welcome both the West Kent Mark Master Masons and the East Sussex Mark Master Masons to the gardens at our Hospice in Pembury to present cheques and to join our fundraising team for a cup of tea and a slice of cake in the sunshine.
