Three members of Red Triangle Chapter No 3874, Ian McGovern, Alan Sale and Harry White were delighted to present a cheque for £150 to John McCormack, as a donation to Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool. The chapter members are all very much aware of the tremendous work that the hospice does for babies and wanted to support their endeavours.
At Zoë’s Place they care for babies from birth to five years of age, all of whom have life-threatening or life-limiting condition that demands 24 hour care.
Since 2013 the chapter companions have donated to a local children’s charity in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards amongst themselves. The advantage of this scheme is primarily that donating to children in some need, is a really positive use of the money that hitherto would have been spent on giving individual cards to each other. In essence some money that the members personally save is donated to add inestimably to the quality of lives of local children.
The members have donated a total of £1,353.75 to the hospice in the last 12 months; the majority of the money was raised by a sponsored cycle ride from Liverpool to Cleethorpes in the summer by members of the chapter.
