Two members of Red Triangle Chapter No 3874, Alan Routledge and Harry White, were delighted to present a cheque for £200 as a donation to Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice, 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 up to five years of age, all of whom have life threatening or life limiting conditions that demands 24-hour care.
Since 2013, the chapter 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, particularly at Christmas time, it is a really positive use of the money that hitherto would have been spent on giving individual cards to each other. Individual members of the chapter also give personal donations to the charity, to add inestimably to the quality of lives of local children.
