Grantham Freemasons have given £500 towards revamping the staff area in Lincolnshire’s Community Health Services NHS Trust Grantham base, for the benefit of staff members working in community nursing, Macmillan service, diabetes and therapy services.
Trevor, Chairman of Trustees for the Grantham Masonic Centre, presented the cheque on behalf of the centre. He said: “The NHS staff has had such a difficult time throughout the COVID-19 pandemic sacrificing a lot to be able to continue to provide care for patients. We are proud that we have been able to support them with this donation. We are really pleased that this money will go towards the staff area revamp at Grantham Community Base. We are passionate about supporting local charities and donating to the NHS to show our gratitude.”
LCHS is the primary community healthcare provider in Lincolnshire delivering community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health at home and reducing the need for people to go into hospital.
Abi Williamson, Clinical Team Lead at LCHS, described how the money would be put to use. She said: “It is so kind of the Freemasons to support us with their generous donation. We will use the funds to purchase a fridge, a microwave and help to improve the staff area within our base in Grantham. This will really help to create a welcoming staff room where colleagues can relax for a few minutes and recharge their batteries. It will definitely boost our staff members’ morale.”
