Cheques for £1500 from Secklow Hundred Lodge, which meets in Stony Stratford; £1,000 from each of Longueville and Bletchley Park Lodges and £3,200 from the Freemasons Grand Charity were handed over at two recent presentations.

Willen Hospice has a dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other health care staff who provide round the clock care to

patients and ongoing care and support for their families.

Hospice fundraising manager Dawn Clark said: “The vision of Willen Hospice is to always be there to care, but to achieve that we need to raise £3.6 million every year – that works out at around £7 a minute every single minute of the year.”

She added: “We’d like to offer our sincerest thanks to Buckinghamshire Freemasons for their generosity in donating nearly £7,000 to support Hospice

care in our community and helping us always to be there to care.”

Ron King from Buckinghamshire Freemasons said: “We are delighted that we can continue to support Willen Hospice, as we do with many other local

charities and hospices throughout our county. It is one of the many and varied ways in which Buckinghamshire Freemasons’ core values of Friendship, Integrity and Charity are used to benefit the local community and underline our commitment to assisting everyone wherever we can.”
