Lifelites has received an incredible donation from the Mark Benevolent Fund, which will change the lives of thousands of life-limited and disabled children across the country.
The Fund, which donates money raised by Mark Master Masons, awarded Lifelites a staggering £141,423. Among other things, this vital funding will support Lifelites new Tech Trunk project.
The Tech Trunk is a solution created by Lifelites for Hospice at Home services across the country that deliver palliative and respite care out in the community. The portable trunks enable hospice staff to take the Lifelites technology with them wherever they go, giving children the opportunity to have access to our life-changing technology in their own home.

Simone Enefer-Doy, chief executive of Lifelites, said: “Our small team works tirelessly to raise the funds we so desperately need, and to have this unbelievably generous gift from the Mark Benevolent Fund is a complete game-changer for Lifelites. It will help us provide technology to thousands of children across the country, children who don’t have the same opportunities that we do. Every moment is precious, and thanks to this donation we can help these children and their families make the most of every second.”
The Mark Benevolent Fund is the official charity of The Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons, a registered charity that began in 1868 as an efficient way to donate money to the charities of the Mark Master Masons. Darren Coleman-Heald is the charities manager and told us why they selected Lifelites to benefit from their fund:
Darren Coleman-Heald, Charites Manager of the Mark Benevolent Fund, said: “The Mark Benevolent Fund is the official charity of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons, the third largest branch of Freemasonry. We are delighted to have joined forces with Lifelites in this all-important project that reaches deep in to the heart of your community giving enjoyment and stimulation to life-limited and disabled children. Our 36,000 members will be pleased to know that their donations are being used wisely by helping those in need across the UK.”
