Freema­son bik­ers take a break dur­ing county tour

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviewsw -

● BIK­ERS vis­ited Run­corn as part of a tour to raise cash to buy ted­dies for hospi­tals.

The rid­ers were Cheshire Freema­sons and took in 18 Ma­sonic halls in to­tal along the way.

As well as rais­ing aware­ness of the Cheshire Wi­d­ows Sons Ma­sonic Bik­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (CWSMBA), they col­lected do­na­tions for the Ted­dies For Lov­ing Care ap­peal.

A spokesman for the Pro­vin­cial Grand Lodge Of Cheshire said the ap­peal pro­vides ap­prox­i­mately 12,000 teddy bears to Cheshire hospi­tals each year, to be given to chil­dren at times of dis­tress.

The rid­ers raised £860 on the day.

Harry Shone, ‘Chap­ter’ pres­i­dent, said: “The aim of the ride was to spread the word that we are now up and run­ning, or should I say rid­ing, and I would like to thank ev­ery­one for the sup­port given.

“De­spite the rain, we en­joyed ev­ery minute”.

Stephen Blank, head of Freemasonry in Cheshire, said: “I was de­lighted when I first heard that some of the mem­bers wanted to start a Ma­sonic Bik­ers As­so­ci­a­tion.

“Freema­sons have many in­ter­ests and it is great to see those who want to, can now share their love of mo­tor­bikes with the fun they get from be­ing a Freema­son.

“I wish them all the best for the fu­ture and I am sure we will see and hear more from them as they get back on the road in the com­ing months.”
