Queen’s College Lodge’s Longstanding Support Of Children’s Hospice South West.

At long last, and grateful for the support of W.Bros Jim Wiltshire, Mike Kinnersley and Jim Virjee, the below picture shows the WM of Queen’s College Lodge 6988, Graham Ten Broeke, presenting £2,782 to Julie, Area Fund Raiser for Children’s Hospice SW.  Charlton House was chosen by Graham and the sum was raised during his year in the Chair in 2019.

The total sum includes a generous contribution of £500 from Somerset Provincial Grand Lodge. Inevitably, Covid frustrated plans for an earlier presentation.

Situated in Wraxall, North Somerset, on the outskirts of Bristol, Charlton Farm usually cares for children and families who live in South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, West Wiltshire, Bristol City and North Somerset.  “Charlton Farm is a place of love, happiness and friendship.  We hope to provide a haven, a place where children and their families can be nurtured and cosseted, returning home with renewed vigour and a sense of anticipation for the next visit.”

Children’s Hospice South West provides hospice care for children and families who live in the South West and delivers this service from three children’s hospices across the region, known as ‘Precious Lives across SW’ – at Barnstaple, St Austell and Bristol.  They care for children and young people, aged 0-21 from the point of diagnosis, who have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and are not expected to survive into adulthood, as well as providing support to their families.  The Care Teams at the hospices create a relaxed, informal but very supportive atmosphere.

W.Bro Mike Kinnersley also chose to support Charlton Farm during his year as WM in 2014
In 2010, W.Bro Robert Francis chose ‘Little Harbour’, St Austell, (the newest in the group) helping them achieve their ‘launch target’ in 2011.

All this is only made possible, Brethren, through your generosity and that of our guests at Queen’s College Lodge.
