With fundraising for Surrey’s 2019 Festival in full swing, W Bro Steve Guzy of Ember Manor Lodge No. 4740 decided to look for a different way to raise money for the Festival appeal
The answer was a sponsored walk of 163km between the 11 major Masonic Centres in Surrey – to be completed in eight days.
On paper that might have seemed enough of a challenge, yet Steve is 62 and his co-walker, W Bro Roy Baker is 65! What hadn’t been foreseen was that the date for the walk would coincide with the hottest weather so far this year.
With challenging temperatures and difficult terrain facing them every day, the brethren strode through Surrey, discovering parts they didn’t know existed, with panache and plenty of water.
Having successfully completed their walk, the intrepid duo helped to raise over £1,000 for the Surrey Festival.
