Rowcroft Hospice has said a huge thank you to the Freemasons Grand Charity for choosing to donate an incredible 3,200. The hospice was recently visited by Assistant Provincial Grand Master Derek Webber and his wife Sandra, who presented a cheque to Sister Sarah Morris, the Inpatient Unit and Hospice at Home Manager.
This cheque came at an extremely important time, at the end of the financial year, and will massively help boost funds. Laura Cameron, Community Fundraiser said Every single penny is vital to help Rowcroft deliver its services - I can guarantee that the money will go towards providing specialist care to people with life limiting illnesses living in South Devon, and supporting their loved ones. Thank you so much for choosing to support Rowcroft and for sharing in our future your generous donation will make a huge difference.
Rowcroft Hospice is a charity and was founded in 1982. Since then, with the support of local people, it has expanded to provide an even greater range of services. Care is provided, to over 1000 people every year, through the ward, hospice at home, community team, lymphoedema clinic and outpatient therapy services. This care includes physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. It costs 5.6 million to run Rowcroft for a year. The NHS funds 23% of the costs, but the rest over 4.3 million - is raised from voluntary contributions.
