NORMANDY MARATHON FOR INJURED SOLDIERS

Tuesday, 01 December 2009

A group of Gloucestershire masons have carried out the wish of Noel Driscoll, who died a few weeks after being installed as Master of Tyndall Lodge No. 1363, to raise funds for BLESMA – the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen’s Association.

In his memory, four of his brethren decided to emulate one stage of a mammoth fund-raising walk he had undertaken for BLESMA in 1987, by walking from Cherbourg to the Pegasus Bridge in Normandy.

The quartet – Richard Harris, Steve Bullen and Phil Green of Tyndall Lodge and Shaun Harris of Kingswood Chase Lodge No. 4666, took just over four days to complete the 112 miles and have raised almost £10,000 for the charity.
