Climb Every Mountain
Members of Apollo Lodge 301 were privileged to have the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro David Macey with them at their meeting in March, and presented him with a magnificent cheque for £1,050 towards the Warwickshire 2012 Festival.
The donation had arisen as the result of six Brethren of the Lodge - W Bro M Banner (Master), W Bro K Hogan, W Bro S Hogan, W Bro G Hogan, Bro N Pearson and W Bro A Cheetham – having entered the “Three Peaks” challenge the previous June.
This entailed climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon within a 24 hour period, which they commenced at Ben Nevis and after a long (and fast) drive and thankfully very kind weather the Brethren completed the challenge at the foot of Snowdon with 15 minutes to spare.
Thanks go to everyone who was kind enough to sponsor the Brethren in this challenge, to be followed later in 2011 with the “Coast 2 Coast” Bicycle Ride, again to support the 2012 Festival.
