24th July 2018, Buckinghamshire – On Sunday 15th July, Buckinghamshire Freemasons Motorbike Lodge and the Bucks Classic Car Lodge members took part in the ‘Mad Dash’. The challenge was to visit all 16 Masonic Centres in Bucks in 8 hours, via motorbike or classic car.
The event started in Olney at 7.00am and with the exception of a few short stops at each centre, and an obligatory photograph, the members were on the move for 8 hours. The members, some of which were accompanied by their families, had a great deal of fun whilst working hard to raise funds for the Bucks Freemasons and the Bucks 2021 Festival, a charitable foundation set up by the Freemasons.
“Many thanks must go to all those heroes who took on this challenge, all of whom now wear the Festival Challenge pin with pride. The money raised by this event will help us as a Province and Bucks Freemasons help those in need across Buckinghamshire,” commented John Clark, Provincial Grand Master for Bucks Freemasons. “The £10,000 raised is the amount which has taken Buckinghamshire over its first £1m for the Festival. A great achievement only made possible by a great event.”
