Lumley Lodge in Chester-le-Street have held their Annual Social in support of our sponsored cycle events. Organised by Craig Pattison and Craig Gartside, both of whom are part of the support driving crew for this year’s 3 Province Cycle Ride, this was the 3rd such event that Lumley Lodge have held in support of our cyclists efforts.
Over 70 Brethren and their Families were in attendance for what was a wonderful night. Compered by Craig Pattison, who is also the Charity Steward of the Lodge, those present were treated to the usual favourites of Heads & Tails, Bingo and a wonderful Raffle, before being thoroughly entertained by the brilliant guitar & vocal talents of Karl Herbert.
Craig concluded the evening with a turn at the mike himself before announcing to all those assembled that due to their generosity, the night had raised £700.00 for the 3 Province Ride, in Aid of Durham 2021 Festival – but that was not the end, before leaving, an anonymous benefactor was so moved when hearing what the monies were being raised for, to help children in need of support & assistance, that they very generously made a further donation to bring the monies raised to a fabulous £1,000.00
A huge thank you to Lumley Lodge, their families and their friends for their extraordinary support
The 3 Province Ride will get under way on Friday 31st May 2019. Training is well under way and any sponsorship support would be greatly appreciated – and just might sooth those already aching legs! Follow this link to sponsor the team or your chosen rider –
