Peter Borland and Jane Hill from the Freemasons Foundation Victoria presented a cheque for $15,000 this month to Mr. Peter Bishop from Ronald McDonald House in Parkville to enable the facility to replace more than 100 LED lights throughout its accommodation rooms.
Foundation Director Jane Hill said that the House has provided a ‘home away from home’ for over 570,000 guests since 2014.
Ronald McDonald House Parkville, is dedicated to providing a ‘home away from home’ for families with a seriously ill child undergoing specialist pediatric medical care at the Royal Children’s Hospital,
Melbourne. Parkville House was established in 1986 and is one of the largest of the 14 Ronald McDonald Houses operating in Australia. Families come from all areas of regional Victoria, interstate and occasionally overseas.
Further discussions will also take place between Peter Borland and Peter Bishop as to how the local Freemason’s Victoria Lodges may be able to continue supporting this very worthy cause.
