£5,000 for Bedfordshire Hospices

Four wonderful local hospices which give outstanding help to people approaching the end of their lives, have been supported by Bedfordshire Freemasons.

The hospices receiving grants are;

Bedford Daycare Hospice – £500

Keech Hospice Care – Adult Hospice Service – £1,440

Keech Hospice Care – Children’s Hospice Service – £1,455

Sue Ryder Care: St Johns Hospice – £1,825

The grants from Bedfordshire Freemasons come through the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF), and will be used to help the hospices continue their vital work during these difficult times.

Will Main from St John’s hospice said:

“We’re very grateful to Bedfordshire Freemasons’ for their generous grant, which will  help our amazing nurses to continue caring for people going through the most difficult time in their lives. With their support we can keep our services running in these uncertain times, providing specialist palliative care to people who need it most both in our inpatient unit, and out in the community.”
