    24 November 2011

    On 14 November 2011, it was announced that trials into a new drug, alemtuzumab, have been successful - a significant development for those suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS).

    The Freemasons’ Grand Charity gave £100,000 towards this research in 2010, at the University of Cambridge.

    Local hospices welcome funding from The Freemason’s Grand Charity – a total of £45,379 is being donated to 14 hospices in the Province of Yorkshire, West Riding. Adult and children’s hospices across England and Wales are receiving £600,000 in total from the Charity. This sum is in addition to funds already donated by local Freemasons.

    Freemasons have a long tradition of funding hospices, with The Freemasons’ Grand Charity donating £9.3 million since 1984. All donations are raised by Freemasons and their families and aim to assist hospices in their vital role in helping those affected by terminal or life limiting illness.

    Speaking about the donation the Provincial Grand Master, John Clayton said: “Supporting hospice services remains very important to Freemasons in this Province and we are delighted that The Freemasons’ Grand Charity has continued to provide this funding again. The care proved by local hospices is exceptional - but continuous financial support is necessary to ensure such a dedicated service. For that reason we are delighted to be able to demonstrate our continued commitment to their cause”
