WBro Stephen Holland presents the Grand Charity cheque to Michelle King of Bury Hospice

On Tuesday 22nd December 2015 the District Charity Steward for Ashday Lea, Radcliffe and Bury, Stephen Holland and I attended the Bury Hospice.
Stephen presented Michelle King with a donation of  £2,757.00 from the Freemasons Grand Charity toward the running of Bury Hospice.
The Bury Hospice is a non masonic charity who provide specialist palliative care. The new facility opened its doors on 13th March 2013. We were shown the extent of the facility and the amazing work they do.
The hospice has friendly, knowledgeable staff who keep it running like a fine ship in these challenging times. They rely upon charitable donations from the people of Bury and beyond.
The service they provide is second to none. Requiring their services is traumatic for the patient and the patient’s family alike but the hospice’s care for both makes such a difficult time that little bit easier.
If any Lodge or individual is looking for a well worthy charity to place a donation then please consider this amazing, caring and deserving hospice.
