ACORNS Children's Hospice in Walsall has received just over £3,100 as part of £600,000 distributed nationally to adult and children's hospices by The Freemasons' Grand Charity.
Dr. Alexander Stewart, provincial Grand Master of Staffordshire Freemasons, met with Acorns' legacy and trust officer, Lindsay Stewart, to discuss the vital palliative care services their donation will be supporting.
Lindsay Stewart said: "We are delighted and grateful to receive this generous donation.
"The donation will make a real difference to people's lives by helping us provide nursing care for life limited and life threatened children, and vital support for their families, across the Black Country and parts of Staffordshire," she added.
Dr Alexander Stewart said: "Charity is a cornerstone of Freemasonry and I am delighted that we can support our local hospices in the wonderful work they do."
Acorns aims to help to provide palliative care and support to the estimated 2,000 plus life limited and life threatened children and their families in the region.
