Staff and volunteers at Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice are celebrating receipt of a grant from the Mark Master Masons of Warwickshire wholly funded by its charity, the Mark Benevolent Fund.
The donation, which is part of a Major Capital Grant of £1.3m to over 250 hospices in England, Wales, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, recognises the contribution made by HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh to the service of the Crown and the life of the nation.
Phil Wills, the Provincial Grand Master for Warwickshire said, ‘We are absolutely delighted that the members of the Province have chosen to support Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice. We are all aware of the toll that the pandemic has taken on charities across the country and hope that this small gift will go some way to help enhance patient care and provide improved facilities for those in need and their families.”
Bethany Richardson of Zoe’s Place Coventry welcomed the donation saying, “This donation will have a great impact at this time affording up to two days of care for our clients”
