Mark Master Mason donates £5,000 to St Leonard’s Hospice
Staff and volunteers at St Leonard’s Hospice, York are celebrating receipt of a grant from the Mark Master Masons of North and East Yorkshire wholly funded by its charity, the Mark Benevolent Fund.
The donation, which is part of a Major Capital Grant of £1.3m to over 250 hospices in England, Wales, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, recognises the contribution made by HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh to the service of the Crown and the life of the nation.
Clive Copley, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master for North and East Yorkshire said, ‘We are absolutely delighted that the members of the Province have chosen to support St Leonard’s Hospice. We are all aware of the toll that the pandemic has taken on charities across the country and hope that this small gift will go some way to help enhance patient care and provide improved facilities for those in need and their families.”
Emma Johnson Chief Executive of St Leonard’s Hospice welcomed the donation saying, “We want to thank the members of Mark Master Masons for this generous donation, which will go directly towards patient care. Donations like this really do make a difference and ensure we can continue to support our community and meet the changing needs of patients, their families and carers.”
