In a year like no other, the Furness and South Lakeland Group of Freemasons would like to thank each and every one in Furness General Hospital, for the outstanding service they have given the community throughout 2020.
The group chairman Peter Schofield was pleased to be able to show the group’s appreciation for the dedication shown throughout the last 12 months. With the help of the assistant charity steward Phil Renney they sought contacts within the hospital and discussions led to a safe and acceptable method by which they could express thanks on behalf of the group’s members.
There are obviously not enough words to describe the impact of 2020 on the NHS. Above and beyond does not describe the unbelievable lengths that NHS staff have gone throughout the year.
Proud does not begin to describe how the Freemasons feel about the people who work in Furness General Hospital and their outstanding response to a global pandemic. Valued can never describe the incredible skills, experience and knowledge within the work force. Care will never ever describe the length that every single one of them has gone to for patients, colleagues and our community.
Addressing the hospital staff, Peter Schofield said: “Please accept the pizzas as a humble token of our respect and gratitude. We can only say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your strength and resilience in the hardest of years will never be forgotten. Please stay strong for this year too.”
A big thank you also goes to ‘Dominos’ for making 70 pizzas in a short space of time so all the hospital wards could receive them within an hour!
Peter added: “We can only look towards 2021 with hope and optimism. With the arrival of vaccines, the future may hold a new vision for us all. Thank you for your dedication, focus and expertise in looking after the community within Furness. Long may it continue.”
