Lands End to John O’Groats non-stop cycle relay in aid of Cancer Research

W.Bro Andrew Robertson (pictured 2nd from the left) of Miles Coverdale Lodge No. 5069 will take part in a non-stop cycle relay on 11 June from Lands End to John O’Groats helping to raise £50,000 for Cancer Research. The event will comprise 14 teams totalling around 80 riders and cover 981 miles.

W.Bro Robertson will be riding in a team of 6 from Fowey to Polruan Quay, Looe, Liskeard, Tavistock, Gunnislake, Princetown, Two Bridges, Moretonhampstead in the 58 mile second leg of the relay.

Andrew said “It’s a bit hilly with a total climbing distance of 4,000 feet. We are taking a baton - a drinks bottle - because that will be easy for each team to carry, but this will not be passed to the next team until the last rider crosses the line. As 3 riders are over 40 years of age, we are expecting support from our younger team members! We think we can do it in four and a half hours and there will be plenty of backup along the way with a van carrying supplies, spares etc.”

**UPDATE** 30 August 2015

This is what Cancer Research UK say that the amount already raised can do:

  1. Cover the cost of a lung cancer clinical trial for an entire year, and
  2. Provide a research bursary for one year, so one of our bright spark doctors can conduct our life saving research, and
  3. Buy a multi-channel pipette so our scientists can measure 12 things at once (imagine how much you could do at once if you had 6 pairs of hands!), and 
  4. Buy a super precise balance for our scientists to weigh out the exact amounts of expensive reagents in their crucial cancer research experiments, and
  5. Buy 10 lab timers, one lab coat, a box of gloves and a pair of goggles!

Miles Coverdale 5069 donate to send disabled and disadvantaged people on pilgrimage to Lourdes

After Lodge was closed on Thursday 16th October, our ladies and other guests were invited into the Temple for our annual open evening.

W. Bro. Derek Webber PGJD PAPrGM gave a short talk on Freemasonry which emphasised the moral nature of our fraternity which was well received by brethren and guests alike.
