Michael Sobell Hospice (Hillingdon) has been chosen to receive a grant of £970 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) Core Hospice Grant Programme.
The grant, will be used to support the provision of care at the Hospice for patients and their families.
This is just one of 227 grants to hospices around the country from Freemasons. In total £600,000 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 £300,000 will be provided to individual hospices across England and Wales via Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice care. The MCF is partnering with Hospice UK to re-imagine day hospice services.
Contributions from Freemasons to hospices have exceeded £15 million in England and Wales since 1984.

An MCF spokesperson said: “I’m very pleased we’ve been able to assist Michael Sobell Hospice. They do an outstanding job helping people with terminal or life limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families through very difficult times.” -ENDS-
