The West Wales Freemasons once again chose Paul Sartori Hospice at Home to receive a grant. The £400.00 grant comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) and will be used to continue the vital Hospice at Home services throughout Pembrokeshire.
This is just one of 237 grants from The Freemasons to Hospices around the Country. In total £600,000 will be donated to Hospices all over Wales and England this year. This includes £300,000 which will be distributed to each Hospice that receives less than 60 per cent funding from the NHS. A further £300,000 will be provided to individual Hospices across Wales and England via Hospice UK, the National Charity for Hospice care. MCF is partnering with Hospice UK to develop and extend bereavement support services in Hospices.
The West Wales Freemasons recently held their final meeting at Cleddau Lodge and raised an extra £275.00 for Paul Sartori. Stephen Hookey from West Wales Freemasons said “I’m very pleased we’ve been able to assist Paul Sartori Hospice. They do an outstanding job helping people with terminal or life limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families through very difficult times.”
“This grant is gratefully received and will be used towards purchasing more equipment and providing home nursing care for Pembrokeshire residents living in the final stages of any life-limiting illness.” Said Pat Coombs, the Clinical Coordinator at Paul Sartori. “This amazing amount could help us purchase 2 bath hoists or 5 wheelchairs” continued Pat.
