On Saturday 27th July, brethren will be taking part in a sponsored walk, “Cross The Bay Walk” . where they walk across Morecambe Bay sands accompanied by the Queens Guide to the Sands. The walk is approximately 7 miles and takes around 4 hours. This year the Provincial Grand Master as decided the money raised will be donated to Lifelites.
Lifelites is a charity which gives life-limited and disabled children in hospices opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have, through the magic of assistive technology. Lifelites donates specialist assistive technology packages for these children and young people to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible.
Thanks to their supporters, they are able to do this for over 10,000 children at every baby and children’s hospice across the British Isles. So wherever you are, there will be a Lifelites assistive technology project for children in your area.
They know that the technology and services that they provide can change a child’s life. It gives children in hospices the opportunity to do so many things that they never thought possible, such as paint a picture, create music, play a game or communicate with their family
Lifelites began in 1999 as a Masonic millennium project. Although it is now a well establited independent registered charity and raising all their own funds from a wide variety of sources, they have maintained firm roots as one of the Masonic family of charities. Because Lifelites donates and maintains their specialist equipment for children using every children’s hospice service across the country, Freemasons’ donations can be used to specifically fund their projects for life-limited and disabled children from your Province. Thanks to Freemasons, they have been able to provide many thousands of pounds of life-changing assistive technology help these children live their lives to the full.
