HospiceCare receives a Generous Donation from MBF

Here is some wonderful news to share with you all.

We were recently told that following an application to the Mark Benevolent Fund by HospiceCare North Northumberland, the Trustees of the Fund had agreed a grant of £27,300 for the purchase of a Ford Transit Leader Van. This is to support the expansion of the Charities’ shops by aiding furniture sales and to transport equipment essential to their fundraising events. The van will make a tremendous difference to the ability of the Hospice to generate funds to support individuals with life limiting conditions living in the area.

A very grateful letter of thanks from the Hospice is shown below.

Many thanks go to the Trustees of the Mark Benevolent Fund for approving this very generous grant and to all of our members who contribute so generously to the Fund. Without all your support, grants such as this would not be possible.

Another wonderful example of the ‘Magic of the Mark’.

Magic of the Mark

The Travelling Sceptre, without the use of a Satnav,  has found its way back to Whitley Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners No 788.   It’s there to be rescued.

The Travelling Gavel has left Whitley Bay and moved from the furthest east of the Province to the furthest west and is now in the possession of Hexham Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 1141.   Perhaps it can now make its way to the far north to compete the Northumberland triangle.
