£600,000 given to 239 Hospices

239 adult and children’s hospices across England and Wales have received a total of £600,000 from The Freemasons' Grand Charity.

Since 1984, £9.9 million has been donated to hospices by The Freemasons’ Grand Charity. All donations are raised by Freemasons and their families and aim to assist hospices in their vital role in helping those affected by terminal or life limiting illness.

Grand Charity hospice grants are made on an annual basis, towards the operating costs of hospice services for adults and/or children.

These grants are made to hospice services in England and Wales that receive 60% or less of their funding from the NHS and individual grants are calculated on the basis of the services provided and the number of beds operated by the hospice.
