United Engineers go nuclear

It was mud, glorious mud for members of United Engineers Lodge, No. 3862, when they completed the Nuclear Rush event. Covering 7.5 miles with more than 50 obstacles, the race is so named because it takes place around the site of a bunker at Brentwood in Essex, which was to have been used in the event of a nuclear war. 

The members joined a team of more than 200 people running for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans charity, and helped to raise over £11,000.

Take the plunge

Two London masons have taken part in the charity skydive Fall for the Fallen in aid of Blesma, the limbless veterans charity. Robert Rusz and Blieu Earp from United Engineers Lodge, No. 3862, carried out a 13,500ft tandem jump to raise money for injured service personnel.

The event saw one jump for every soldier killed while on operations in Afghanistan and took place at Netheravon Airfield, near Salisbury in Wiltshire, where the Army Parachute Association carries out skydives. Blesma is the national charity for all limbless service men and women, their widows and dependants. It was formed in the years following World War I and became a national charity in 1932.
