In accepting the cheque, Peter said "As we enter the final furlong in what has been an amazing Festival we must not allow a sense of complacency to take over which might just see us fail at the last hurdle.  Lodge Elias de Derham has shown us how important it is to 'kick on' and make sure we get over the line"

The Salisbury Hospice was the chosen charity of Immediate Past Master - Chris Waters during his term of office, and with Lodge Charity Steward Derek Brown he visited the Hospice to present a cheque to Celia Scott who is pictured accepting the cheque on behalf of the Charity.

Freemasons throughout the Province provide valuable support to the hospice movement which enables individual local units to provide end of life and palliative care. 

In addition the Hospices supported by Wiltshire Freemasons are able to offer much needed support to the families of patients .

Nationally, the Freemason's Grand Charity makes substantial grants to the three primary hospices operating in the Province - Salisbury Hospice, Prospect Hospice in Swindon and Dorothy House Hospice in Bradford-on-Avon.

The Province of Wiltshire also supports the three hospices with annual donations.
