The Freemasons of Rochdale continued their annual Christmas tradition by paying a visit to the Springhill Hospice to deliver a number of festive gifts for patients.
The money raised by lodge members had been donated to help to provide Christmas gifts for the local men and women who are in receipt of Hospice services.
Chief Executive Julie Halliwell said, “It’s a wonderful gesture to think about others at this special time of the year. I know that our patients really appreciate these gifts and we extend our thanks to the Freemasons of Rochdale Todmorden and Bacup for their kindness.”
After the presentation a small team of Freemasons then hand delivered the ‘Christmas Goody Bags ‘ to the homes of patients throughout the Borough of Rochdale.
