Driving a banger from Cornwall to Morocco

Gib or Bust

 

Simon Jordan of Dunsmore Lodge No. 6442 has taken on a mammoth challenge in aid of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. Not only does this consist of a journey across Europe, it also includes an additional challenge or two on the way.

In his own words, Simon described the task ahead, "The rally will start on September 30th September leaving St Austell, Cornwall on Sunday lunchtime and finishing in Morocco on Friday 5th October.

"The only snag is that our car has to cost around a measly £500 to be entered in to the Banger Rally category. We will be driving on some of Europe’s finest and most scenic roads coaxing our chosen wreck to the finish point.

"Over £2000 worth of cash prize’s will be awarded to the teams scoring the most points in each of the daily tasks and the overall winner will also receive a suitable trophy!

"We will be doing our best to raise as much money as we can for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance."

If you are able to support Simon in his endeavours any help will be gratefully received and faithfully applied. You can sponsor him at: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=simon_and_kevin&pageUrl=1

Guatemala Volcano Victims Receive £25,000

Masonic Charitable Foundation

The Masonic Charitable Foundation has donated £25,000 to Plan International UK to help support 30,000 people whose lives have been devastated by the eruption of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala.

 Guatemala

Over 1.7 million people have been affected by the crisis, with at least 12,277 people having been evacuated from their homes. At least 100 people have lost their lives and the number is expected to rise as hundreds remain missing in the ash and rubble. The extreme conditions have left thousands of people without access to safe shelter, food, drinking water or sanitation facilities.

David Innes, Chief Executive of the Masonic Charitable Foundation said:

“The Fuego volcano eruption has devastated the lives of many thousands of people, with, as usual, children bearing the brunt of the suffering. I am very pleased that the Masonic Charitable Foundation was able to move so quickly and provide funds for Plan International UK’s vital work at the heart of the disaster zone.”
