SPONSORED WALK – GEORGE MALT
ROKER to SOUTH SHIELDS
It is my intention to do a walk of approximately 8 miles from Roker Pier to South Shields Pier on Saturday 1st September 2018 in aid of the Durham 2021 Festival RMTGB Charity.
George Malt is a member of Lodge of Loyalty No. 8635 in the Province of Durham, and have been since March 1991. When he complete’s the walk George will be 77 years young.
George had a road accident as a child of 4, in 1945. After 3 years of surgery etc, his right leg was infected with gangrene, which required the amputation in April 1948.
It now happens to be 70 years since George acquired his first prosthetic limb. George is the oldest of 4 brothers, who have all been involved in sport, George played football and cricket at school, and he is proud to say that he has worked all his life up to retirement age 12 years ago.
I thought it might be a good idea to attempt to walk from Roker to South Shields, a distance of between 7 and 8 miles, and incorporate fundraising for the Durham 2021 Festival.
George is a well known Freemason in and around the Sunderland area and in Provincial Office
