Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People is to purchase a specially adapted vehicle thanks to a £38,000 grant from the region’s Freemasons.

The Boston Spa will receive its cheque at the Province of Yorkshire West Riding’s annual meeting, being held at Harrogate’s on Tuesday (May 7).

Martin House is one of six Yorkshire organisations to benefit from a £123,000 “major grants” windfall, ranging in value from £10,000 to £38,000.

The grant will be used to purchase a new, specially-adapted vehicle to transport up to three children and a carer. It will also accommodate children in their increasingly more complex wheelchairs.

Provincial Grand Master David S Pratt, said:

It is an absolute honour to be able to present this deserving charity with this grant, and I look forward to doing so at our Provincial Grand Lodge annual meeting in Harrogate.

This money has all been raised thanks to from throughout our Province, and I am extremely grateful for their generosity and continued support of the charity.

Charity is, and always has been, at the heart of Freemasonry, and it will continue to be so for as long as our ancient and honourable institution exists.



Sarah Smith from Martin House said:

We are delighted to receive the support of the Freemasons, and this vehicle will make a huge difference to us. It will enable us to take children and young people on more trips and outings, helping them to enjoy more activities and make precious memories during their stays at Martin House.
