Kirk Mulhearn, Stephanie Lascaille and Peter Jones

On Tuesday December 2nd Bolton District Deputy Chairman, WBro Peter Jones and District Charity Steward, WBro Kirk Mulhearn had great pleasure in presenting the Grand Charity Cheque for £3,343 to Bolton Hospice. This was accepted on behalf of the Hospice by Stephanie Lacaille, Community Fundraising Manager for the Hospice.

On the same evening the Hospice was holding a ‘Thank you evening’ for it’s supporters which Peter and Kirk were pleased to attend, representing the ELMC who had previously provided a grant to the Hospice for bedroom furniture following refurbishments. They were then able to tour the Hospice to better appreciate the facilities and how funds raised are spent for the benefit of members of the Bolton community.

A buffet supper followed when Peter and Kirk were able to chat about Freemasonary and it’s charitable activities to the Mayor of Bolton, Councillor Carole Swarbrick and the Mayoress. The Mayor told them how much she had enjoyed the Festival Banquet at the Macron Stadium, at which she had been a guest of the Provincial Grand Master, RWBro Sir David Trippier.
