Tony Harrison (President of the West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity) and Steve Kayne (WLFC CEO) along with other senior Freemasons visited Zoё’s Place in Liverpool to give them £10,000 after hearing that the management team in the hospice had to take the decision to reduce the number of beds they provide from six down to four, due to significantly lower donations from the public and other charities that provide 95% of the running costs.
As a children’s hospice Zoё’s Place only receive 5* of the running costs from the NHS compared to the 40% adult hospices receive.
Zoё’s Place Trust is a registered charity providing palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The care is provided in a caring, safe, home-from-home environment in three baby hospices in the UK based in Coventry, Middlesbrough and Liverpool.
