Salisbury Hospice Charity given over 1.5K by Provincial Grand Lodge of Wiltshire Freemasons

January 2020

Salisbury Hospice Charity received a generous grant of £1,550 from The Provincial Grand Lodge of Wiltshire Freemasons at the end of 2019.


The grant from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Wiltshire comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) and will be used for to ensure the vital palliative care provided by the team at Salisbury Hospice can continue to be provided for the residents of Salisbury and the surrounding towns and villages. Salisbury Hospice Charity has received over £12,000 in the last six years, a partnership of which we are extremely proud.


This is just one of 218 grants to hospices around the country from Freemasons. In total £750,000 has been donated to hospices all over England and Wales in the last year. This includes £300,000 which has been distributed to each hospice that receives less than 60% funding from the NHS, including Salisbury Hospice Charity. A further £450,000 will be provided to individual hospices across England and Wales via Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice care. MCF is partnering with Hospice UK to widening access and address barriers to local hospice services for local people who are homeless or have learning disabilities. In total, grants from Freemasons to hospices have exceeded £13 million in England and Wales since 1984.


Peter Burch, Trust and Foundation Fundraiser from Salisbury Hospice said:


“We’re very grateful to The Provincial Grand Lodge of Wiltshire and The Masonic Charitable Foundation for their grant, which continues to provide valuable support for our incredible team of nurses and volunteers within the hospice, whilst also promoting the momentous support giving to many hospices throughout the UK from the Masonic Charitable Foundation and their network of local Lodges."
