FREEMASONS in Scarborough have put more than £3,200 into the coffers of St Catherine’s Hospice.

The sum is part of a total of £14,807 donated to six hospices in the north and East Riding by the Freemasons’ Grand Charity.

Master of Scarborough lodge David Brocklesby said: “Supporting hospice services remains important to freemasons and we are delighted the freemasons’ charity has continued to provide this funding this year.

“The care provided by hospices is exceptional – but continuous financial support is necessary to ensure such a dedicated service.”

St Catherine’s director of funding development David Marshall said: “Once again we are indebted to the freemasons for another generous donation.

“The hospice has been very fortunate to have benefited from their kindness in the past and we are very grateful.

“It is donations like these that help the hospice provide valuable care to more than 1,500 people each year.”
