Hampshire & IOW Freemasons donate £7,500
Naomi House & Jacksplace receive £7,500 donation from Hampshire Freemasons!
The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Freemasons have supported our hospices since we first opened and Provincial Grand Master, Mike Wilks (pictured above), presented a cheque during a visit.
He was accompanied by fellow mason David Hilton and the money was raised by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge.
Paul Morgan, Head of Fundraising for Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:
The support we receive from Masonic lodges locally is hugely important to our charity. We are indebted to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge for the support they have shown to local children, young people and families. As an illustration, £7,500 could fund ongoing counselling and bereavement support for two families who have lost a child at our hospices.
Mike Wilks added:
The work of this charity, which provides care and support for life-limited and life threatened children and their families, is dear to the hearts of all Freemasons. We have been supporting the charity since it was started at Naomi House 22 years ago and I know they will continue to do so.
