The intrepid bikers head off on their charity run to Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh.

The third annual Aberdeenshire East Masonic Charity Motorcycle run to Rosslyn Chapel took place recently.

Ten intrepid bikers, led by organiser Alan Brown of Lodge Dundonnie 1087 of Boddam, departed from a very dull and misty Peterhead Golf Club on their epic fundraiser.

The bikers were waved off by the Provincial Grand Master, Billy Grant, Provincial Grand Secretary, Dr Douglas Nicol, Provincial Grand Chaplain Ian Bain and several other brethern who got up early to support the group as they headed south.

Provincial Grand Master Billy, his wife Margaret and two others followed the biking entourage by car, and battled through the fog around Stonehaven and Montrose picking up other bikers en route reaching Rosslyn Chapel beside Edinburgh in the early afternoon

They then spent some time looking round the chapel before heading back to the North East.

The proceeds from this year’s run will go to local Masonic charities. Charity fund raising for both local and Grand Lodge Charities is a major part of the work of the Masonic Order. The main Grand Lodge of Scotland charity this Year is ‘Prostate Scotland’ and in recent years Scottish Lodges have raised considerable fundsfor other major charities in the past.

Anyone interested in joining the order can contact Provincial Grand Secretary by emailing Drdouglasnicol@aol.com
