A Ladies Night hosted by Newton Lodge No. 6129 in Devon has helped to raise £1,000 for Rowcroft Hospice
Tony Cane, Master of the lodge, and his wife Chris, presented the cheque to the hospice with the money raised from a raffle draw and auction at the Ladies Night, together with donations. The hospice provides specialist care to patients with progressive, life limiting illnesses in South Devon.
Debbi Shotton, Rowcroft’s Community Fundraising Officer, said: 'This is such a generous donation and it was lovely to be the Ladies Night nominated charity. Every year, we care for over 2,000 patients and their families.
'We provide comfort, support and specialist services in our patients’ homes, in the community and at our Inpatient Unit in Torquay. Donations like this help us to enable families to share precious and joyful moments when they are needed most.'
Devon Freemasons have donated over £100,000 to Rowcroft Hospice since 1984 and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
