MOTORBIKE mad masons from across Scotland arrived in Kirkmuirhill as part of a marathon 330-mile fundraising event.
More than 30 members of the club, known as The Widows Sons, began their dawn-to-dusk ride at the Marcus Humphrey House, Bridge of Weir, and followed a route that covered much of west central Scotland, with stops along the way to collect contributions from local Masonic lodges.
The cash raised – expected to reach more than £6,000 – will go towards Masonic Homes which provide residential and day care for masons and non-masons alike.
Provincial Grand Master of Lanarkshire Upperward Bro Alex Thomson was on hand at Lodge Nethan St John No 1289 in Kirkmuirhill to present a £150 cheque as locals looked on at the amazing array of motorbikes parked up outside the Lodge.
Alex said: “I’m very pleased to be here and to present a cheque to the Widows Sons members. It’s a great way of raising money for a terrific cause.”
The Widows Sons was founded in Scotland in 2006 and now has more than 90 members.
