On Yer bike
I would hazard a guess that there are many that would like to have said this to me in the past, but now you can say it and I won’t mind, but more of that later.
The Surrey 2019 Festival Appeal in aid of the RMBI is now under way and it is time for us all to think about how we focus our charitable giving. We are truly blessed in Surrey to have two fantastic RMBI Homes. The care and facilities that these Homes provide is second to none. Their class leading dementia care is the envy of other care providers. The RMBI is there for us when we need them, when we are at our most vulnerable. They don’t let us down and so we should make sure that we do not let them down.
The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master is calling on all of us to support this appeal by whatever means we can. To do our best and go that extra mile. So this is where the ‘on yer bike’ comes about. In a moment of madness I have pledged myself to undertake a sponsored cycle. I will cycle from James Terry Court in South Croydon to Shannon Court in Hindhead, a distance of around 40 miles. I will undertake this on Sunday 29th June 2014 which is the day of the Summer Garden Party at Shannon Court. I plan to arrive during the garden party (hopefully St Johns Ambulance will still be there!!).
The reason for doing this is of course to raise money for the Festival Appeal, but also to raise awareness and to give you an example of what you can do to support the Festival. I do hope that you will support me in this endeavour.
