North Wales Freemasons Take Part in the PARAS 10 Challenge

On the 6th September, W.Bro’s Ian Griffin and Dave Thomas of Wepre Lodge No. 6055, along with two fellow Freemasons, Simon French, and Charles Payne, competed in the PARAS 10 challenge. Pictured above, Ian Griffin [Wepre Lodge No. 6055, North Wales], Simon French [Royal St Edmund’s 1008, Province of Suffolk], David Thomas [Wepre Lodge No. 6055, North Wales] and Charles Payne [Sir John Corah No. 7736, Province of Leicester].

Ian Griffin, Charles Payne, and Simon French are all ex-servicemen supporting the Household Cavalry foundation and have raised nearly £1400 so far.

Formed in January 2013, The Household Cavalry Foundation was set up to raise much-needed funds to care for the Soldiers, Casualties, Veterans, Heritage and Horses of the Household Cavalry.

W. Bro. Dave Thomas has raised money for the Brittle Bone Society and has raised a good amount of funds.

All met up in high spirits ready for the 10 miles of running/tabbing at Catterick Garrison, each carrying 35lb minimum weight which was weighed by the Para Physical Training Instructors before gaining entry into the field where the start line was.

The photo below shows a determined ex-Paratrooper who had just completed the course; emotions ran high as he crossed the line leaving most spectators with lumps in their throats.
